Mario Balotelli: Price too high, say AC Milan

Vice-president Adriano Galliani admits the Italian giants are interested in signing the City striker - but not for the £31million he claims the Premier League champions are demanding.

Balotelli, who is a Milan fan, has long been linked with a return to Italy, where he progressed through the ranks at Inter Milan before joining City in 2010.

Galliani said: "At the end of Friday Manchester City was still saying 37 million euros. We'll see on Monday. At that price, Balotelli will stay at Manchester City."

Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, spent time at Milan's headquarters on Friday, reportedly discussing a possible move.

Galliani is more hopeful of bringing Milan idol Kaka back to San Siro and is in talks with the Real Madrid player about reducing his salary.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
