AC Milan chief Galliani: I will stay in Barcelona until deadline day to sign Ibrahimovic

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits they need massive money to sign Barcelona striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Galliani held talks with Barca officials yesterday over Ibrahimovic's signing.

"We will meet with Barcelona again at midday tomorrow. The operation is very difficult and very costly," he told the official Milan website.

"I would like to point out that Milan do not intend to provide players as part of the deal. We are working to bring another great champion to Milan.

"We don't want to kid anyone, but nor can we say that it certainly won't go through. We'll see, it's very difficult. I am not leaving Barcelona and the rapport with President Sandro Rosell is excellent."

He added: "Tomorrow we'll resume talks with President Rosell and I am prepared to stay here in Barcelona until Tuesday, the final day of the transfer session."
