No Kaka or Balo for Milan

Milan have cooled fresh links with Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli and Kaka of Real Madrid.

Both players have again been associated with the Rossoneri, but chief Adriano Galliani insists neither will arrive.

“Balotelli is certainly a talent, but Milan are full of attackers right now,” he stated ahead of Saturday’s Italian Super Cup Final against Inter in China.

“As for Kaka, that is impossible. The difference in tax laws between Spain and Italy would make such an operation very expensive.

“If someone arrives then it will be in the last few days of the transfer market and, as I have said for some time, it will be e left-sided midfielder.”

Milan have a wide range of attacking options available to them this term in the shape of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato, Robinho, Antonio Cassano, Pippo Inzaghi, Alberto Paloschi and Stephen El Shaarawy.

Kaka has been regularly linked with a return to Milan since his 2009 switch to Liga giants Real Madrid.
