Milan confirm £31m Balotelli tag

Milan transfer chief Adriano Galliani gives an update on Kaka and reveals Manchester City set a £31m price-tag for Mario Balotelli. “We’ll talk about it if that price drops.”

The club had been adamant that there was no interest in Balotelli, but Galliani has now confirmed they made enquiries within the last 24 hours and were given a price by City officials.

“Balotelli? We can talk about it if that price drops. Up until last night it was staying firm at €37m and at these conditions it is impossible.”

The Sun claimed this morning that Balotelli was ready to leave Manchester and his price-tag had been set at £24m – which translates at roughly €30m.

Galliani is also in negotiations with Real Madrid to take Kaka on loan if he halves his wages.

“It is a very complicated operation and for it to go through we need all three parties to make sacrifices. President Silvio Berlusconi is enthusiastic about the move.”
