Giampaolo Pazzini says he's staying with AC Milan.

The striker insists he's happy to fight for his place with the Rossoneri.

"I am staying at Milan, even if you hear so many rumours at this time of year," he said during a media event.

"There is no rivalry with Balotelli. He's a good lad and I've never had problems with him. If anything, we have a good rapport. You'll see that in future he'll do even more for the team."
