AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani hopes Manchester City lower the asking price for Mario Balotelli.

The Rossoneri have now admitted heavy interest in the Italian striker but City will not let him go for less than £23.5million according to reports.

Galliani insists the Serie A club is keen on Balotelli but want the transfer fee to come down before they would enter negotiations.

"If Balotelli's price comes down then I'll get over to Manchester immediately," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
