Mario Balotelli: Not expected to leave AC Milan this summer

Balotelli’s future has been the subject of intense speculation all summer, with reports suggesting that he could be set to return to the Premier League following an eventful two-and-a-half-year spell with Manchester City earlier in his career.

However, Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has denied receiving any bid from Arsenal and head coach Inzaghi is staying relaxed about the situation.

He wants the 23-year-old to regard this season as a fresh start and find his best form, although he accepts that it is up to the club to decide on what happens.

"I am calm, Mario is an important player and I will try to help him improve," Inzaghi said at a press conference. 

"I will reset everything that has been said about him, I have no problem with him. I have to make the most of his ability.

"Will he leave? The club will decide. If he leaves then we will need a replacement because the centre-forwards are him and (Giampaolo) Pazzini. However, I believe that he will remain here."

Inzaghi joined Galliani and club president Silvio Berlusconi for a meeting on Sunday about the club’s transfer plans.

He said: "The club knows my priorities. We are missing something to get to the level of Juve, Roma and Napoli."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
