AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has told fans they're capable of buying big before the market shuts.

Galliani underlined that Milan - nor any other Italian club - were in the financial position to make a significant capture.

"Once upon a time great players arrived in Italy, but that is no longer possible. Certain players with big transfer fees and big salaries are no longer available to Milan, Inter or Juventus.

"Twenty years ago we made more money than Real Madrid and Barcelona, now we net half of what they generate in revenue.

"Italy has changed as a country and the economy has changed. The problem is not Milan, but all of Italian football."
