AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani believes Rino Gattuso will stay.

The veteran midfielder has been linked with a lucrative move to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, but Galliani doesn't predict a summer exit.

"Gattuso has a contract with us and he has not asked for a transfer," the Rossoneri Vice-President said.

Galliani's words come after the player's agent also seemed to rule out a Stadio Meazza exit for his client.

"I think he'll stay at Milan," Andrea D'Amico noted last week. "However, if he was to leave, he'd never go to an Italian side after the Rossoneri.

"Is he wanted by other clubs? The only serious offer that we have received is from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala."
