AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani admits he is a massive admirer of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

The Italian firebrand seems to be finally settling at Etihad Stadium with six goals in his last five games in all competitions and Galliani says it is a 'passion' of his to get the former Inter Milan man into a Rossoneri shirt.

"Balotelli is my passion, he's a great player," Galliani told Sky Italia.

"Take him to Milan? Who knows, for now it remains a passion."

And Galliani feels that Balotelli and current AC striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic would make a dangerous partnership.

"Ibrahimovic? He's fine and will remain until the end of his contract," he added. "Ibra and Balotelli will compensate each other, they would be good together."
