Milan: No interest in Ganso, Montolivo
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has denied the club are set to sign Ganso or Riccardo Montolivo.
Santos midfielder Ganso has been expected to move to the San Siro all summer, personally declaring his desire to play for Milan. And after Fiorentina admitted defeat in their bid to hold on to Montolivo it was though he too would switch to the Serie A champions.
Galliani is adamant that the rumours will amount to nothing although new signings could be in the pipeline before the transfer window closes next month.
"There are no negotiations in place to sign Montolivo,'' Galliani told the club's official website. "Milan does have a vacant place for a non-European player but it's not Ganso.
"If another player was to arrive it would be a midfielder. However, I believe that [Andrea] Pirlo can be replaced by a player that we already have in our squad. Right now we are happy with what we have and the team is 99% complete.
"If a player was to arrive, one of our players would have to leave.''
The Rossoneri have not made a big splash in the transfer market this summer, with Philippe Mexes, Taye Taywo and Stephan El Shaarawy their only new additions. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has moved permanently from Barcelona but he was at the club last season.
