AC Milan reveal 'passion' for Balotelli

AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has admitted that he has a passion to bring Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli to the club.

The 21 year old Italian forward scored a brace in a 6-1 thrashing over Manchester United on Sunday for City against their fierce rivals. His recent form has not gone unnoticed in his home country.

‘Balotelli is my passion, he's a great player,’ Galliani told Sky Italia.

‘Take him to Milan? Who knows, for now it remains a passion.’

With Balotelli being a self confessed AC Milan fan, he has always been determined to play for the club despite his upbringing with Milan rivals Inter. The forward was once pictured wearing an AC Milan shirt while playing for Inter, a move which caused disruption at his former club.

City are not willing to sell Balotelli having only signed him shortly over a year ago, although a rumoured £40 million has been mentioned it may not be enough to tempt them into selling just yet.
