Milan – AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani says they are interested in signing Mario Balotelli, but only if Manchester City drops their asking price for the Italy striker.

Balotelli, who is a Milan fan, has long been linked with a return to Italy, where he progressed through the ranks at Inter Milan before joining City in 2010.

On Saturday, Galliani said: “At the end of Friday Manchester City were still saying €37 million, we'll see on Monday. At that price, Balotelli will stay at Manchester City.”

Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, spent time at Milan's headquarters on Friday.

Galliani is more hopeful of bringing Milan idol Kaka back to San Siro and is in talks with the Real Madrid player about reducing his salary. – Sapa-AP
