AC Milan plan to sell in January to fund a deal for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is setting up negotiations for Balotelli, but has ordered his No2 Adriano Galliani to make room in the budget by selling players next month.

Mathieu Flamini, Bakaye Traoré and even Alexandre Pato are under consideration to be sold, says Tuttosport.
