AC Milan boss Max Allegri has dismissed talk of a swap involving Ronaldinho for Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

Both players appear frozen out at their respective clubs.

But Allegri says: "It's fantasy football.

"I'm happy to have Ronaldinho at my disposal. Even if there isn't much space for him now, he is an important player for us.

"As for Cassano, I don't know how that case will end. But he is a very important player for Italian football."
