Milan chief talks transfers

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has answered transfer questions about Didier Drogba, Kevin Prince Boateng, Francesco Lodi, Cristian Zaccardo, Luca Antonini and Ignazio Abate.

Cornered by journalists as he arrived at the Lega Calcio offices, Galliani discussed his outfit’s market intentions.

“I don’t think there will be any major signings this month,” he stated. “Drogba to Milan or Juventus? There will be no Italy for Drogba.”

On suggestions that Galatasaray had made an offer for Boateng, he responded: “There has been no bid for him. If one would have arrived then we would have said no. No one has asked us for Luca Antonini either.

“Lodi? We asked Catania for him, but they rejected us.

“Signing Cristian Zaccardo from Parma was a possibility, but that is not the case anymore. We’ve turned down Zenit’s offer for Abate, we won’t sell him.”

The official was also asked about the future of current Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri. “He has a contract until 2014. But, as is always the case, a Coach’s future is subject to results.”
