Galliani on Bojan, Carroll and Palombo

Adriano Galliani admits Milan “turned down” the chance to sign Sampdoria’s Angelo Palombo and ruled out Andy Carroll after securing Bojan Krkic and M’Baye Niang. "Our market is closed."

It has been a very busy day at the Milanello training ground, as in the last few hours the Rossoneri have officially signed Niang from Caen and Roma striker Bojan arrived to complete his loan transfer.

“Bojan is a good signing and with him we close the transfer market,” Galliani told journalists outside the club headquarters this evening.

“Tomorrow he will undergo his medical and he’ll be available for this weekend’s trip to Bologna.”

The Vice-President also revealed an Italian international midfielder was rejected.

“Palombo was proposed to us, but we turned down the offer,” he said of the Sampdoria veteran who spent last season on loan at Inter.

“Carroll on loan from Liverpool? We have completed our selection of forwards and will not be buying any more. It’s a pity Robinho got injured, but we will wait for him.

“As for Kaka, there will be no trip to Madrid for further talks with Real.”
