AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is confident keeping hold of Mario Balotelli. Balotelli has been linked to a swap involving Arsenal striker Joel Campbell.

Galliani said: "Balotelli never asked to be sold. He will stay at Milan. 100 per cent doesn't exist on the transfer market, but 99.9 per cent does.

"Alessio Cerci and Campbell? They have the characteristics our Coach likes, but so do many other players."
