Milan 'will jump for Balotelli if...'

Adriano Galliani confirms there are developments for Kaka and Milan “will jump for Mario Balotelli" if the price-tag drops.

The Vice-President spoke to Sky Sport Italia ahead of today’s Serie A game with Bologna at San Siro.

“We are trying for Kaka. It is an issue of numbers. I don’t want to get into particulars right now, but we have to make a sacrifice, as do Real Madrid and Kaka.

“In a day or two we’ll know whether the move can go through or not. It is a difficult solution to find, because there is a big anomaly in the difference between the Italian and Spanish fiscal rules.

“Of all the players who left Milan, nobody had the emotional effect of Kaka, not even Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Thiago Silva. There are thousands of Rossoneri fans who are orphans of Kaka since 2009, including me.”

Galliani was also asked about Balotelli amid reports the €37m price set by Manchester City has dropped to €28m.

“It depends on them. I am waiting, they are there and if the price drops then we will jump for Balotelli. Otherwise, we will stay in Milan. They are his legitimate employers, so we wait, observe and see what happens.

“How much does it have to drop? We don’t know. Paying in instalments is an option, but you still have to pay.”
