Galliani: 'No Fellaini or Cerci'

Adriano Galliani denies Milan are close to Marouane Fellaini and confirms Atletico Madrid stop Alessio Cerci joining Genoa.

The Rossoneri CEO spoke to Mediaset Premium ahead of this afternoon’s Serie A match with Bologna.

“We hope it will be the turning point of our campaign and then we’ll see how things go from here,” said Galliani.

There have been strong reports of an active transfer window, above all for Manchester United man Fellaini.

“We have seven central midfielders and if nobody leaves then we can’t bring anyone else in. Fellaini is an interesting player and I’ve always liked him, but it’s impossible in the current situation.

“As for Cerci, we’ll see, he is on loan for another six months. It is true that Atletico said no to his loan to Genoa. At the moment he won’t be moving, as any deal must be made with the all-clear from Atletico Madrid.”

Keisuke Honda was very critical of Milan in the Japanese media, but Galliani believes it was a misunderstanding.

“A whisper in Japan becomes a whirlwind in Italy, as it is translated via English. Something is no doubt lost in translation.”
