AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists they won't consider the sale of Alexandre Pato.

Yesterday, Galliani confirmed the rumours that Barcelona wanted Pato in an exchange deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer.

He said: “Pato is absolutely and utterly not for sale. Barca wanted to exchange him for Ibra, but we made a very clear refusal.

“With the arrivals of Ibra and Robinho we have new income from sponsors and fans, so that we maintain our financial fair play status.”
