AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has ruled out breaking up the happy marriage between Manchester City and Mario Balotelli.
The San Siro side has long been linked with offering the madcap striker a route back to Italy but the club’s CEO has ruled out making a summer move for Balotelli, who scored against Ireland on Monday night.
The partnership of Balotelli and Roberto Mancini’s side has been far from serene with red cards and fire works punctuating the union, but Galliani vows not to ruin the romance.
“Mario to AC Milan?” he mused. “No, no, not AC Milan, Manchester City is his. Do they make a good couple? Yes, a nice couple.”
