AC Milan have acted quickly to release a statement which basically denies that Italy striker Mario Balotelli could leave in January.
"AC Milan firmly and absolutely deny statements that have been attributed to the chairman about Mario Balotelli being put on the transfer list," the Serie A club's statement said.
The statement was responding to recent reports in Italy that Silvio Berlusconi, President of AC Milan, had apparently decided that enough was enough, and he was going to sell him.
Balotelli only moved to the San Siro in January of this year, so it would definitely be a surprise if he was going to be sold. The fee was an initial fee of 22m euros (£19m).
The ex-Man City striker, who was sold by Roberto Mancini after their roller-coaster of a relationship reached an end, has scored six goals in 12 league games so far this season.
Last season he racked up 12 goals for the seven-time European champions in only 13 Serie A appearances.
Do you see another move for Balotelli?
