AC Milan's Galliani Denies Cassano Interest, Bemoans Italy's Tax System

Adriano Galliani does not believe Cassano is needed at the San Siro, instead desiring a 'prima punta'...

After admitting that AC Milan may drop their interest in Wolfsburg star Edin Dzeko after having their initial bid turned down, the Italian press have indicated that the Serie A giants could go after Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

However, vice-president Adriano Galliani does not believe that type of player is required at the club.

"When he was at Real Madrid we thought about this idea, but then rejected it," he informed

"Above all we need some more power and weight up front, because we already have that [playmaker] role covered with Ronaldinho."

With Cristiano Ronaldo on the verge of joining Real Madrid, Galliani commented on the Primera Division outfit's free-spending ways, as they already purchased Kaka from the Rossoneri earlier this week.

"I repeat this is all a matter of different types of taxation. If we were a Spanish club, we would have saved €40 million."
