Reports are out claiming that AC Milan GM Adriano Galliani says Mario Balotelli is desperate to stay.
The Italian international striker is on-loan from Liverpool, but has missed most of the season with a sports hernia.
“Mario is fine now,” Galliani told reporters in Milan.
“He has a crazy desire to stay at Milan, and I hope he proves it on the pitch. Mario wants to stay here, but I’ve told him that based on what he’s done so far, he doesn’t deserve to stay here.
“I told him to convince us to keep him here, because we love him. He promised that he’ll do that, and I hope he does.”
