Galliani dismisses Benzema link to Milan

AC Milan managing director Adriano Galliani has dismissed speculation that Karim Benzema could be set for a move to the San Siro.

The Lyon forward is one of the hottest properties on the global stage after netting over 40 goals for club and country over the past two seasons.

Benzema, who has been valued at 100million euros by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, admitted yesterday that he has his sights set on a move to one of European football's elite clubs - citing Milan as one of the possibilities.

But Galliani claims the 20-year-old France international is not on his wish list.

"Benzema is a good player, but we haven't spoken to him," he told Corriere dello Sport. "Aulas and Lyon are a very expensive shop, so he will stay where he is. I don't want to disturb Lyon. Benzema is a great player, he is young, but there is really nothing there with us."

Galliani added that he has his heart set on a different striker - Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o.

"I have a love for another centre forward: Eto'o," he continued. "If I could I would take him but that's talking about dreams."
