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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
