AC Milan have rejected reports that Mario Balotelli made a bet that he would let his girlfriend sleep with all of the Real Madrid players if the Spanish club manage to overcome Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semi-final.
The former Manchester City striker was quoted as saying that he would allow his other half Fanny Neguesha to spend the night with the squad because he was certain that Madrid would be unable to come back from their first-leg 4-1 defeat to Dortmund.
"AC Milan denies the information published today of alleged statements made by Mario Balotelli on the Champions League match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund," the Daily Mail quotes the club as saying.
"AC Milan insists that the player has never declared or commented anything about this topic with any newspaper."
The second leg is due to get underway at the Bernabeu this evening.
