Champions League next for Milan

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has already outlined the club's objective for next season – to win the Champions League.

The Rossoneri have yet to complete this term's target of netting the Serie A title – they need one more point – but Galliani has big plans for the future.

"We want to get back to winning ways in Europe," he stated on Tuesday. "After winning the championship we will then try to do the same in the Champions League.

"It went badly for us against Tottenham this season. Let's hope we have fewer injury problems next term."

The official was keen to point out how difficult it is for Italian sides to compete with their Spanish and English counterparts.

"In the Champions League we are penalised primarily by the gap between ourselves and the Spanish clubs who have tax advantages over us and in terms of TV money," he added.

"With regard to English clubs, they don't have tax advantages but the big sides can count on revenue from the stadiums that they own."

Turning to the transfer market, Galliani got the fans excited.

"It will be a campaign worthy of the Champions League," he added. "Ganso? Let's leave him where he is, we don't want to disturb Santos."

Despite that statement, the Brazilian playmaker is expected to join the Rossoneri at some stage over the summer.
