AC Milan confirm once again their intention to keep Robinho
AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi and vice-president Adriano Gallani both confirmed yet again on Tuesday evening their intention to keep Brazil star Robinho at the club.
Berlusconi, 76, who was at San Siro watching his team lose their final Uefa Champions League group game 1-0 to Zenit St Petersburg, was asked if the possibility of signing Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was just a dream.
He said: "If Balotelli is a dream? No it is not. And Robinho will not go away."
This was later backed up by Galliani, who , while admitting there would be some departures from Milan, denied his recent praise of Neymar was a hint that the club would look to sign the Santos star.
"We have many players, a total of 32. If not leave four or five players, it will be difficult to hire. About Robinho though, it is our intention for him to remain.
"Nobody said we intend to hire Neymar. I just said that, around the world, he and El Shaarawy are the best young players," said Galliani.
