BERLUSCONI EYES RONALDO SWOOP
AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi wants to sign Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports in the Italian media.
Former Manchester United man Ronaldo, who arrived at Real from Old Trafford in 2009, is contracted at the Bernabeu until summer 2015.
But Berlusconi has revealed his interest in the 26-year-old Portugal international, who was on target for the Spanish giants during their 4-0 UEFA Champions League thrashing of Tottenham on Tuesday evening.
He said: "My dream is to have Cristiano Ronaldo in the team. I gave free reign to (AC Milan's CEO Adriano) Galliani (to start the negotiations)."
Real coach Jose Mourinho says he would leave the Spanish club if Ronaldo were sold to AC Milan, though has made it clear he would not follow the forward to the San Siro.
He said to Mediaset Premium: "Berlusconi wants Ronaldo? That's an impossible mission. Although football is an industry and you never know.
"If Cristiano goes away, I'll go away too. But not to AC Milan, not AC Milan."
