AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has said Mario Balotelli will remain at the club despite strong interest from elsewhere.
The Italy international has been widely tipped to make an exit from the San Siro this summer with a number of potential suitors, including Arsenal, reportedly interested in securing his services.
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has been quick to dismiss any link with the striker though and insists the club are not interested in signing the former Manchester City star.
The future of Balotelli looks to have now been assured after Galliani said to the Italian outfit's official website that the striker 'will remain at Milan'.
Despite being criticised for some of his performances last season, the Italian ended up as the Rossoneri's top scorer with 14 goals in the league, seven ahead of nearest team-mate Kaka.
Milan suffered a dreadful campaign, eventually finishing eighth in Serie A, so will not be competing in Europe in the 2014-15 season, but Balotelli is expected to be at the San Siro for the new term.
