“Montolivo in January? I don’t think we will be making any move in January,” Galliani told Milannews.it. Last year we decided to move in the transfer market because we had a high number of injuries.”
“But when Clarence Seedorf, Gennaro Gattuso and Mathieu Flamini return we will be fine in midfield.”
In team news, Milan look set to welcome back Alessandro Nesta to the defence after he missed the 4-1 win over Parma in midweek.
Midfielders Gattuso and Flamini are both still long-term absentees for the Scudetto title holders but Luca Antonini and Alexandre Pato are nearing a return.
Elsewhere, Dutch midfield maestro Mark van Bommel should replace Massimo Ambrosini, with the rest of the starting XI remaining the same.
For Roma, coach Luis Enrique will be boosted by the return of Brazilian defender Juan, who seems likely to replace former Manchester United man Gabriel Heinze.
Summer signing Miralem Pjanic is definitely out of tomorrow’s Stadio Olimpico clash and he joins Francesco Totti, Aleandro Rosi, Bogdan Lobont and Simon Kjaer on the sidelines.
Other changes could include Marco Cassetti, who may well replace Simone Perrotta at right-back, while Erik Lamela and Fabio Borini look set to make way for Marco Borriello and Pablo Osvaldo.
The action gets underway at 17:00 BST this afternoon and both Roma and Milan will be keen to bag the three points and start making an assault on the top of Serie A, with both on the fringes at the moment in ninth and fifth respectively.
