The Serie A side's boss insists his star striker will stay with the club unless somebody meets his massive release clause

Star striker Andrea Belotti will stay at Torino unless his release clause is activated, coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has said said.

Belotti has reportedly emerged as a target for AC Milan after his fine 2016-17 campaign, during which he scored 26 Serie A goals.

The 23-year-old is contracted until 2021 and has a release clause of €100million for any clubs from abroad.

Mihajlovic said Belotti, previously linked to Manchester United and Chelsea, would stay at Torino unless the clause was activated.

"President [Urbano] Cairo has been clear: release clause or nothing," he told a news conference.

"I'm glad he's with us. There is a great relationship, confidence and affection. 

"I'm very satisfied with the work we're doing and over the last three weeks I have seen hard work, generosity and desire to do well."
