Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has dismissed reports linking the club with Mario Balotelli.
The controversial striker looks increasingly likely to be on the move this summer after suffering several bust-ups with current employers Inter.
Numerous clubs have already been suggested as potential destinations, with Inter’s city-rivals Milan among them.
However, Galliani admits there would be little chance of Inter wanting to do business with their neighbours.
“Balotelli? I don’t know if he will stay at Inter or if he will be sold but I think it would be difficult to see Inter selling him to Milan,” he said.
“This is an Inter issue anyway, not ours.”
Balotelli’s agent has also sought to play down the speculation by insisting his client could yet stay with Inter.
“I have never been told that the relationship between Mario and Inter has ended,” Mino Raiola told Sky Italia.
“I don’t want to create a media circus and Mario doesn’t want this either. He wants the team to remain focused on their targets.
“We will be on press blackout until at least Thursday, out of respect to everyone.”
