Galliani fails to rule out Centurion move

The Milan vice-president confirmed the Racing midfielder would fit into their ethos of bringing in players to help build for the future, though Mario Balotelli is not a target
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has intimated that the Rossoneri could be interested in bringing Ricardo Centurion to the club.

The 19-year-old midfielder is currently playing for Racing Avellaneda in his native Argentina, and has been linked with moves to Italy in the past, with Napoli and Inter both reportedly interested as well as Portuguese outfit Benfica.

Galliani did not confirm any interest on Milan's part, but did suggest they would be looking to bring in young players as they look to build a squad for the future.

"Centurion? The Milan of the future will be young, so let us see what happens," he told Sky Sport 24.

The vice-president also said they had a bid rejected for Catania midifielder Francesco Lodi, signing Cagliari's Davide Astori would be very difficult, and rumours of Mario Balotelli coming to Milan were untrue.

He added: "Cagliari will not sell Astori.

"The president is right, we have never spoken about signing Mario, and I don’t think he is for sale."
