LONDON, England, April 30- AC Milan have released a statement denying that Mario Balotelli offered Real Madrid players his model girlfriend, Fanny Neguesha for the night if they qualified for the Champions League semi-final.
It was reported Monday that Balotelli was so sure, in fact, that Jose Mourinho’s side would fail to recover from their 4-1 deficit against Borussia Dortmund, that if they did, the striker would offer his girlfriend as reward.
In Spanish newspapers AS and Marca, the Italy forward was quoted as saying: ‘If Real Madrid come back in Champions League, I’ll let my girlfriend sleep with them!’
However, in a statement released Milan on Tuesday, they denied the words attributed to their star man.
“Milan denies the information published of alleged statements made by Mario Bolotelli on the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
“AC Milan insists that the player has never declared or commented anything about this topic with any newspaper,” the statement added.
The lady in question, Belgian model Neguesha, didn’t comment on the quotes, but will no doubt be relieved to discover they weren’t true.
Balotelli has previously spoken about his blossoming relationship with Neguesha.
In an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, the striker said his girlfriend was the ‘first woman I feel comfortable with’.
