Galliani expects Ibra stay

ESPN staff

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani remains confident Zlatan Ibrahimovic will remain at the club despite reported interest from Real Madrid.

• Ibrahimovic rejects exit rumours

Jose Mourinho, who worked with Ibrahimovic while at Inter Milan, is said to have exchanged text messages with the Sweden striker over a potential move to the Bernabeu this summer.

However, Ibrahimovic said last month that he had no intention of leaving the San Siro and Galliani believes the player will stay true to his word.

"I do not distrust Mourinho," Galliani said in Sport. "In addition, Ibrahimovic has said he wants to stay at Milan.

"I have a very good relationship with Ibra, but I won't ask if the SMS rumours are true. I usually do not spy on my companions' mobile phones, and least of all on Zlatan's."
