AC Milan are set to hold out for at least €30million for Chelsea target Mario Balotelli, according to sources in Italy.

The ex-Manchester City striker, who only joined the Italian giants this January, has already been linked with a move back to the Premier League to rejoin former boss Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

Talks of unrest in the AC Milan camp have surfaced and Balotelli, who is currently experiencing a goal-drought for both club and country, may be sold to raise funds for the Rossoneri- having not settled in as well as expected.

Mourinho is a known admirer of the 23-year-old forward and is looking at improving his front-line in January, but will have to stump up €30million in order to get his man.

It is thought that both AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani and manager Massimiliano Allegri aren't keen on selling their forward, but are willing to let him leave if their valuation is met.
