New AC Milan signing M'Baye Niang asks not to be compared to fellow Frenchman Thierry Henry.

New AC Milan signing M'Baye Niang has asked not to be compared to his French compatriot Thierry Henry.

The 17-year-old joined the Rossoneri from Caen this week on a three-year contract.

"Don't compare me to Thierry Henry and [Manchester City striker] Mario Balotelli," he said. "I am Niang."

"Am I here for the future? No, I'm here for the present. My dream is to win the Ballon d'Or."

Niang scored five times in 30 appearances for Caen in 2011-12 in Ligue 1.
