Adriano Galliani, the chief of ambitious Italian club AC Monza, has revealed that they have had contact with former Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Monza, which is owned by former AC Milan proprietor Silvio Berlusconi, have major financial backing and are expected to be one of the favourites in the Italian second-tier in 2020-21 – despite only having just earned promotion from Serie C.

Galliani insists that Monza will be highly competitive in the transfer market, but revealed that Boateng’s financial demands were too steep.

“Let’s not forget that Monza is 100 percent Fininvest. With such a solid and ambitious ownership, no player contacted refuses to play with us,” said Galliani, as quoted by Tribal Football.

“I flirted with Boateng but he asks for a salary that is not compatible with our parameters.

“Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic]? I love him but he has a salary out of our reach.”

Galliani signed both players while he was a bigwig at AC Milan. Boateng is currently on loan at Besiktas from Fiorentina.
