Galliani: 'Balotelli 99.9 per cent'

Adriano Galliani said Mario Balotelli is “99.9 per cent” staying at Milan, confirmed interest in Joel Campbell and updates on Robinho.

The CEO spoke to reporters this evening at an event and was asked about Tuttosport claims Balotelli was offered to Arsenal in exchange for Costa Rica striker Campbell and €10m cash.

“Balotelli never asked to be sold. He will stay at Milan. 100 per cent doesn’t exist on the transfer market, but 99.9 per cent does.

“Alessio Cerci and Campbell? They have the characteristics our Coach likes, but so do many other players.”

The Robinho saga is again holding up Rossoneri strategy, as negotiations with Orlando City have stalled.

“There are some offers and more will arrive on Monday,” said Galliani.

“We are convinced that we can find a solution.”

The Milan chief was also impressed by the probable election of Carlo Tavecchio as new President of the FIGC.

“It’s the first time Serie A, Serie B, Lega Pro and the LND have all backed the same candidate. We think the necessary reforms can be enacted with Tavecchio.”
