Galliani reveals Ibra Milan talks
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be the subject of further transfer negotiations between AC Milan and Barcelona tomorrow, the Italian club's vice-president Adriano Galliani said on Wednesday.
Galliani met officials from Barça to discuss the possibility of the Sweden international striker, who moved to the Nou Camp from Inter Milan, joining the Rossoneri.
Ibrahimovic and Barça are keen on the deal, but there are many issues to resolve, according to Galliani. "Negotiations will continue tomorrow," Galliani told AC Milan's official website. "Tomorrow at noon I have an appointment with the president of Barcelona [Sandro Rosell]. Let's see.
"The negotiations are very complex, very difficult, very expensive, but the relationship with Sandro Rosell is really good and he is very nice," Galliani went on. "The will of Barcelona is to sell the player to Milan, the availability of the player also like that. There is a lot of money to overcome and this is the difficulty."
Galliani said he will endeavour to bring Ibrahimovic, who also played for Juventus in Serie A, back to Italy. "I will not deceive anyone but I will not even say that we do it for sure," he added. "I will try and that's why I am here, I do not move, even if it means not going to Milan against Lecce on Sunday.
"I do all that is in my ability and capacity to try to bring this great champion to Milan. It is very difficult," Galliani admitted. "What effect has made me to see Ibra at the stadium? The effect is as great as always, a great champion who has absolutely given his willingness to come to Milan. Now we must solve the problem."
Galliani insisted Milan's only action in the transfer market at present is with Ibrahimovic and denied Marco Borriello and Klaas Jan Huntelaar are on the verge of leaving the San Siro. The Milan vice-president added: "But I would point out that there are not any other moves being made by Milan.
"There is Borriello, there is Huntelaar. I often see in the papers that they are part of the transfer, but there is no truth in that," he said. "We are here to try to take Ibrahimovic to Milan, that's all. There are other hypotheses on the table."
Ronaldinho believes Ibrahimovic would be a perfect addition to the Milan squad. Asked about the possibility of forming a striking trio with Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Pato, Ronaldinho told El Mundo Deportivo: "I do not know about that but I'd love to play with one of the best strikers in the world. It would be a perfect signing for Milan."
