AC Milan have rejected an offer from Napoli for young defender Mattia De Sciglio, according to CEO Adriano Galliani.

De Sciglio produced several excellent performances during his Euro campaign with Italy. The match against Spain was arguably one of his best ever games for club or country, and we finally saw a glimpse of the potential most have been expecting from the young Italian.

It was these performances that led to Mattia been heavily linked with a move away from the San Siro club. Galliani, at a news conference for Milan, revealed that the club had received an offer from Napoli, which they swiftly turned it down. Galliani insisted that the full-back is not for sale, and will stay with the Rossoneri for now.

There were reports that Juventus were interested in him, however Galliani insists the only real offer (so far) has come from Napoli. Whether a move to Juve or abroad could tempt De Sciglio remains to be seen. At this stage, he's staying put and hasn't asked for a release to move anywhere. Of course, with the sale of the club by Berlusconi to a Chinese consortium, it's hard to speculate on what will happen with transfers post-sale, at least for now.

De Sciglio's contract with Milan finishes in 2018
