Midfielder staying at San Siro.
AC Milan have ruled out a surprise move to Galatasaray for midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri.
Boateng hit the headlines last week when he walked off the pitch during a friendly between Milan and lowly Italian outfit Pro Patria, after allegedly suffering racist abuse from supporters.
The Ghanaian’s actions have since been widely praised and it appears he has admirers in Turkey, after Gala’s shock approach.
However, Palmeri claimed that after an hour’s meeting between Boateng and the Rossoneri’s vice-president Adriano Galliani, the Serie A giants ruled out selling the 25-year-old.
Boateng played for Premier League outfit Tottenham between 2007 and 2009 but made just 14 league appearances for the North Londoners in a troubled spell.
After stints at Portsmouth and on loan at Borussia Dortmund, the Ghana international joined Milan and has proved a big hint at the San Siro, despite some inconsistent displays.
Galatasaray have also been linked with a move for Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder but the Netherlands international looks likely to make a Premier League switch.
