Adriano Galliani: AC Milan vice-president has again denied any interest in Manch

The former Inter Milan man has been linked with a return to the San Siro this month after finding his chances limited under manager Roberto Mancini.

Club president Silvio Berlusconi made a public apology after labelling Balotelli as a "rotten apple" during the Ballon d'Or ceremony last week and said the club has no interest in the Italy international.

And Galliani has backed the Rossoneri owner by again dispelling any thoughts of a potential bid for the 22-year-old by telling Sky Sports Italia: "Berlusconi is right about Balotelli. We have never spoken to him and I don't think he is for sale anyway."

Meanwhile, Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon admits the chances of the forward joining the San Paolo club is highly unlikely.

"We thought about bringing him here two years ago, but then Mario decided to sign for City," he said.

"Now, everything is different and we're good in attack, so maybe a move could be something that could happen in the future."

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.

W

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!
