Galliani on Boa, Cassano, Ibra, Seedorf

Adriano Galliani confirmed Kevin-Prince Boateng, Antonio Cassano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. “I hope to convince Clarence Seedorf to stay with Milan.”

The transfer chief was in a summit with Genoa President Enrico Preziosi today and secured a deal to buy out the remaining 50 per cent of Boateng's contract.

“At the start we had some difficulties, but at the end found an agreement that I think is fair and right for both parties,” said the Milan Vice-President.

“Both Marco Amelia and Alberto Paloschi are also entirely owned by Milan. The latter will certainly remain, as he'll be important over the summer when Alexandre Pato and Robinho are in the Copa America.

“I don't think Cassano has any particular problems and his agent hasn't said anything. Ibrahimovic will certainly stay at Milan. Every now and then Mino Raiola likes to joke around, but Ibra is going nowhere.”

Of the veterans with contracts set to expire next month, Seedorf is the least likely to put pen to paper, as he has several offers from Brazil.

“I hope to convince Seedorf to stay at Milan.”

Galliani was also asked about reports the Rossoneri are preparing a swoop for want-away Fiorentina captain Riccardo Montolivo.

“He plays in front of the defence, so in that position we already have Massimo Ambrosini and Mark Van Bommel.”
