Milan have dismissed talk of Ricardo Oliveira moving in January.
The Brazilian striker has struggled to make an impact in Milan and there had been suggestions that he could make a January loan switch.
Oliveira’s problems on the pitch have not been helped with the news that his sister has been kidnapped.
Nonetheless, the forward retains the backing of the Milan hierarchy.
“Ricardo Oliveira can count on the club’s faith,” vice-president Adriano Galliani told the club’s official website.
“He absolutely won’t be sent away, not in January or on loan in any guise.”
