AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says they'd welcome the signing of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli. Balotelli was publicly warned last week that he does not "set a good example" at Eastlands, fuelling rumours of a sale.

"I wouldn't want to talk about Balotelli, but I cannot deny I have a natural fondness for him," said Rossoneri Vice-President Galliani.

"I don't think it would be so difficult to keep him on the straight and narrow."
