Gennaro Gattuso is doubtful that Napoli's Marek Hamsik will be joining him at Milan for the new season.
The Slovakian is sending signals to the Rossoneri, but the Italian veteran believes his asking price will put a stop to the move.
"It is clear that Milan like Hamsik, but I don't think that there is the money to get him because I am seeing figures of €30m and €40m," he told Sky Sport 24.
"The disagreements over the television rights could also be an obstacle in talks between the two clubs.
"We could certainly be more competitive with Hamsik, but if we want to win the Champions League then he won't be enough."
The 2006 World Cup winner has again committed his future to the club and hopes that Antonio Cassano will continue his adventure in Rossonero.
"I have another year left on my contract and I'll remain," continued the former Salernitana player. "Milan is my home. I'm happy here and I'm the one who decides.
"Cassano? I hope he stays," Gattuso added. "Although I do understand that he wants to play regularly with the European Championship next summer."
