“We never thought about Cassano because we are looking for a lone striker,” explained Galliani.
Regarding the Wolfsburg striker, Galliani left the door half open. “We will try again. The Germans said he is not for sale, which is legitimate considering that he has still two years left on his contract. But he is our target so we will insist.
“Then there are other options which we will follow if the Bosnian doesn’t arrive. All the big players will stay in Milan though at 99.9 per cent while Pato is at 100 per cent – he is the best 19-year-old striker in the world.”
