Milan on Robinho and Julio Cesar...

Milan have insisted that Robinho will not leave the club and his Brazilian international teammate Julio Cesar will not arrive.

The striker has been paired with an exit this summer, while reports suggest that the Diavolo are keen on the Inter goalkeeper who looks set to leave the Nerazzurri.

“Our transfer market is closed,” club Vice-President Adriano Galliani told Sky Sport Italia. “We are covered in terms of numbers in all positions.

“There are no offers for Robinho. We have five strikers and if no one will leave then no one will arrive.

“I do keep informed about everything going on in Europe, but the truth is that our transfer market is closed.

“Julio Cesar? He is a great guy, a great player, a person whom I admire, but we have three goalkeepers and he will not arrive.

“We have Christian Abbiati, Marco Amelia and Gabriel – a young goalkeeper who has won the Under-20 World Cup and he will stay.”

Galliani also discussed the decision by FIFA to allow goal-line technology to be introduced to the game.

“Better late than never, as they say,” he added. “How long has it been happening in tennis? Football can not do without hawk-eye.

“Decisions on offside and other questionable situations of the game are always accepted, but when the ball enters the goal then we must intervene.

“I do not want you to forget the image of the Sulley Muntari goal that I always have on my phone.”

Muntari had a perfectly good goal against Juventus earlier this season not given because the officials missed the incident.
