Cassano staying at Milan, says agent

Antonio Cassano has no intention of leaving Italian champions Milan this summer, his representative has underlined.

The Italian's future has been the subject of speculation ever since the Rossoneri wrapped up the Scudetto.

However, contacted by Sky Sport 24, Cassano's representative Beppe Bozzo ruled out a Stadio Meazza exit.

"Antonio will stay with Milan," Bozzo stated. "He is very happy and there are no reasons why he would want to leave."

Bozzo's words come just hours after Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani seemed to also rule out a move.

"He's not expressed an unhappiness at being here," Galliani continued. "He has a contract until 2014. If he isn't content then we can talk about it."

Cassano only joined Milan in January after he fell out with Sampdoria owner Riccardo Garrone.

Palermo also distanced themselves from stories that they were preparing a bid for the Azzurri international.

"Cassano will never come to Palermo," President Maurizio Zamparini stated. "His salary is too big for us, we just can't afford it."
