Milan chief hails 'bargain' Balotelli

AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has hailed Mario Balotelli as a 'bargain', with the striker having impressed since his return to the San Siro.
Italy international Balotelli netted 12 goals in 13 Serie A appearances following his arrival from Manchester City in January and is expected to be a major player when the Rossoneri start the new season.
"He is a top star, even if he was often a reserve at Inter and Manchester City," Galliani said. "When he arrived at Milan I told him to continue being a star, but a starting one.

"I consider him to be a bargain, as he scored 12 goals in 13 games and we are paying for him in monthly instalments."

Milan finished third in the Italian top-flight last season and Galliani expects them to at least match that performance in 2013/14.

He added: "Milan never go below third place, as over the last five years we have always been on the Serie A podium.

"Juventus are still in pole position for Lo Scudetto, because they won it last year. However, Milan are right up there, so at least we'll be in the top three."

Milan are 5.00 to win Serie A next season, with Juventus 1.72 and Inter Milan 11.00.
