The Italian only joined Milan in January this year from Manchester City, but he is already being linked with a move.

His agent Mino Raiola has made a number of statements, which seem to confirm that Balotelli is unsettled at the San Siro.

But vice-president Galliani insists that the club are not looking to sell Balotelli, who was even linked to a reunion with his former Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

"There is absolutely no problem with Balotelli," he is quoted by the Italian media. "Mario will continue to be our star. He is not going anywhere.

"He is a fascinating individual with global appeal.

"He will stay with Milan because he is happy here and has a long contract with the club."

AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has stated his desire to keep Balotelli, was also discussed by Galliani, with some sections of the Italian press claiming he could be axed after an in-different start to the season.

But Galliani insists he will remain in charge until the end of the season at least.

Allegri's present deal will expire in the summer.

"Allegri will continue as coach," Galliani said. "At the end of the season we will analyse the situation as we always do.

"We are still in three competitions and all three of them can qualify you for Europe."

Following Inter Milan's decision to sell to Indonesian Erick Thohir, AC have been linked with foreign investment - but Galliani also says this is not true.

"If it were true, I would know about it and there are no on-going negotiations with regards to selling the club," he said.

"We have balanced the books and there is no need to sell the club."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
