Manchester City and Manchester United have both been linked with a swoop for young striker El Shaarawy, who has started the new Serie A season in superb form.

Galliani insists there is no chance of Milan letting El Shaarawy leave, while he is keen to sort out a new deal to keep him at the San Siro for another six years.

"Manchester City and United interested in El Shaarawy? It's no joking matter! Stephan has a contract with us for other five years and soon he will extend until 2018," said Galliani.

While El Shaarawy has been linked with a move from Milan to Manchester City, there has again been speculation about Mario Balotelli heading in the opposite direction.

Galliani admits he is an admirer of the former Inter Milan player, but is staying realistic about the chances of agreeing a deal.

He said: "I have a profound love for Balotelli, but love doesn't always end well."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
