Allegri: Boateng and Robinho are staying
By Football News
AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is adamant that Kevin-Prince Boateng and Robinho will both remain at San Siro.
Boateng said that he was considering leaving the club after the racist abuse he received from Pro Patria fans in a friendly, but his coach is confident those comments were made purely in the heat of the moment.
"I did not see him particularly upset today. Perhaps he was letting off steam before, but everything has calmed down now. Nobody likes leaving Milan and I cannot see him leaving," Allegri said of the 25-year-old midfielder.
Allegri also went on to reveal that negotiations between Milan and Santos regarding the transfer of Robinho have broken down.
"Last night the Robinho negotiations broke down, so he will remain a Milan player. (Ignazio) Abate is also a Milan player and is very happy at Milan. I am not even going to contemplate letting him go," he said.
Allegri also denied reports the San Siro club were interested in signing Didier Drogba and Mario Balotelli, because the Italian club want to focus on bringing in younger players.
"Our transfer policy is to focus on youth, so Drogba will not be joining us. He does not fit in with the president Silvio Berlusconi's vision for the future," he said.
"Mario Balotelli? He is a Manchester City player. He just has to concentrate on his game, otherwise he will end up throwing away his career."
