AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani insists Mario Balotelli can play with Stephan El Shaarawy.

There are doubts about his partnership with El Shaarawy.

"There is no incompatibility. One is a central striker and one a wide attacker," said Galliani.

"El Shaarawy needs to catch his breath, as is only normal. Balotelli, meanwhile, is a star and it is to everyone's advantage that he is now back in Italy."
