Galliani warns AC Milan fans: Man City striker Balotelli only long-term proposition

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has played down talk of a January bid for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Galliani, speaking ahead of the Champions League game against Ajax, has again cooled expectations of a Balotelli capture.

"Balotelli has just been signed by City," he said. "Therefore it is unthinkable that they would sell him.

"Mario is just 20 though, so it would be fine if he came aged 22 or 23, but for now it is important that we don't trick the fans into thinking he will arrive sooner."
