AC Milan want sign Balotelli if price is right.AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has confirmed his club’s interest in signing Italy striker Mario Balotelli – but not at Manchester City’s asking price of £31million.Quoted in Gazzetta dello Sport, Galliani said: ‘At the finish of Friday, Manchester City still said 37million euros. They will see on Monday. Under these conditions, they will stay at Manchester City.’ The Rossoneri are also in talks to take Actual Madrid midfielder Kaka back to the club in the January transfer window, but Galliani says the 30-year-old’s capture will need ‘great effort’ from all parties.
The 22-year-old has struggled for form and encountered a variety of off-field issues in the work of his time in England, prompting questions to be asked about his future with the Barclays Premier League champions.
‘I have up days and down days. At the moment it is down because I look at the taxation – that kills. In France, no player earns over 5million euros, net.”Everyone must make a great hard work – AC Milan, Actual Madrid and Kaka,’ they said. ‘Much depends on (the player’s) economic sacrifice.
Galliani’s statements seems to contradict AC Milan coach Massmiliano Allegri, who had earlier said his club were not interested in signing Balotelli or free agent David Beckham. ‘There are talks in progress for Kaka, an important negotiation method if this great return ought to occur. I agree with the club and Adriano Galliani on everything, so there has seldom been my position against that of the club. There is an exchange of ideas, definitely, but it is not true that I don’t need Kaka.
‘Beckham? I do know Beckham, they is a great man as well as a player of actual class. However, you cannot wipe out his birth certificate and Milan have selected to focus on youth hopefully with support from an important champion like Kaka.’Balotelli? They are only negotiating for Kaka. In assault they have Giampaolo Pazzini, Bojan Krkic and M’Baye Niang, while they also have experienced players who bring a sense of security.’
