Reports in Italy claim Milan are in the running to sign Siena striker Mattia Destro, who is also a reported target of city rivals Inter.

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has also been linked with a move to the Rossoneri outfit having played on loan with the Rossoneri last season.

However, Galliani said to Gazzetta dello Sport: "Milan's transfer market is closed.

"We have nine midfielders and our market is closed."

The Rossoneri have already reinforced their squad with the arrival of defender Francesco Acerbi from Chievo and midfielders Riccardo Montolivo (Fiorentina), Kevin Constant (Genoa) and Bakaye Traore (Nancy).

Moreover, the Rossoneri last month turned down a 46 million euros offer from Paris St Germain for Brazilian defender Thiago Silva.

Milan this week extended Silva's contract for a further season, which will keep the Brazil international at the San Siro until June 2017.

"We must thank (Milan owner) Silvio Berlusconi for keeping Thiago at the club and, hence, resisting the temptation to sell him," Galliani said.

"With regards to those that will depart, only perhaps (Djemal) Mesbah will leave the club."

Mesbah joined Milan in January from Lecce and the Algerian defender is a target of Torino.

S

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.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

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!
