It’s rife in the Italian and Spanish press that AC Milan have agreed terms with FC Barcelona and Chelsea for Ronaldinho and Andriy Shevchenko respectively. Milan have been hotly touted to absorb both the stars and now it appears that they have accomplished so.
Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has welcomes both the players, even the Ukrainian international Andriy Shevchenko, who was sold to Chelsea in the summer of 2006 for a whooping 30 million dollars. Ancelotti remarks:
“Shevchenko? I never expressed myself negatively on his possible return, nor that he could not play together with Pato.
“I just limited myself to say that the two players have similar characteristics and in any case I’m convinced that of Sheva returns he would be useful to this team.
“Ronaldinho? Intriguing. For us he would be a new player, between a ‘trequartista’ and an attacker.”
Now here’s the irony. Although Milan supremo Silvio Berlusconi has lent his unconditional report for Carlo Ancelotti, the Milan coach is still under widespread speculation to be replaced in the summer. For the last two seasons Milan have consistently failed to challenge for the scudetto and word is that Ancelotti would be ousted in the summer and possibly the Special One, a certain Jose Mourinho, would be rushed in.
