AC Milan could look to sell Brazilian pair Robinho and Alexandre Pato to boost coffers for a sensational January swoop on unsettled Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, reports said Sunday.
Italian media have been linking Balotelli, formerly of Inter Milan but a known supporter of AC Milan, with a shock move to the Rossoneri for several weeks.
The speculation gathered pace on Sunday with reports suggesting club owner Silvio Berlusconi, a known admirer of 'Super Mario', wants to re-create Balotelli's partnership with fellow Italy striker Stephan El Shaarawy at Milan.
Both Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport carried reports Sunday claiming Milan have been looking at ways to secure Balotelli's signature for several weeks.
Neither report, however, cited any sources from the clubs in question.
