Milan President Hints At Double Swoop
AC Milan is certain to wring some knee-jerking alterations to their squad in the summer with a number of high profile players expected to be smuggled into the red and blue half of San Siro. There is escalating speculation on the number of players Milan are most likely to import at the end of the season and Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has flared up transfer rumours even more by naming two of the biggest fish in European football.
One is Andriy Shevchenko and the other is Ronaldinho. Of course both the players are supposedly on the slide down the hill in footballing terms but Milan supremo Berlusconi is confident that he can sign both the players and reshape them into world class performers that they really are.
First to Sheva and Berlusconi says that he is confident on signing back the player whom Milan sold to Chelsea in the summer of 2006 for a staggering 30 million pounds. Berlusconi says:
“I want to bring him (Shevchenko) back to Milan and it is very likely I’ll achieve it. It would be great for us if he came back.”
Shevchenko has been nothing more than a superflop at Stamford Bridge in these two years which have been the most inefficient in his entire career and although the Ukrainian international still insist that he is happy in London, the word is that he would relish returning to his old stamping ground where he spend 7 glorious seasons during which he won the elite UEFA Champions League in 2003.
As for FC Barcelona and Ronaldinho, Berlusconi agrees that the Rosonerri are eager to land him in Milan too. AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has already met with Ronaldinho’s brother-cum-agent Roberto de Assiss and now Silvio Berlusconi declares:
“We’ll speak to Barcelona in the next few weeks.”
