Italian giants AC milan thwart claims that they’re looking to bring in the likes of Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli to the San Siro this summer…
AC Milan have distanced themselves from fresh reports claiming they will move for Manchester City pair Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez.
Both players have had a share of controversial moments with the Premier League title-challengers this season and have often been linked to moves away from the club.

Reports coming out of Italy this afternoon state that the Milan giants are no longer looking to bring Carlos Tevez to the San Siro next season, with further reports outlining that a move for Mario Balotelli is also unlikely.
Despite leaving the club without permission earlier this season, Tevez has enjoyed a change of fortunes of late, scoring four goals since his return to the first team and helping City move to within three points of Manchester United in recent weeks.
Balotelli meanwhile has been suspended for the last three games following his sending off against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
Milan are three points behind Juve in Serie A table and asked if he stays in touch with Balotelli, vice-president Adriano Galliani said: “No, we don’t hear from each other and even if we did I would not tell you.”
Galliani also brushed off the suggestions that the club were looking at Tevez by jokingly claiming: “I don’t know who he is!”
Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola has, in recent weeks, reiterated that the Italian is happy with life at Manchester City and will be staying with the club for the remainder of his contract.
However, after the hotheaded Italian’s latest red card, City boss Roberto Mancini expressed his frustration over the actions of the 21-year-old, claiming that the club will be looking to sell Balotelli this summer.
But the player’s agent has it back saying: “Mario said he is happy at Manchester City, there is nothing else to add.
“In the future, if he returns to Italy there won’t be just the options to go to Inter Milan or AC Milan, there may be other clubs like Juventus.
“But then again, Mario is good for City and will remain there.”
