Silvio Berlusconi has tried to win back fans

AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has tried to win back fans by saying that he is once again ready to invest in big-name players and managers. The club has limited its investment over the last couple of years and has consequently slip down the table. After two poor campaigns under their former players – Clarence Seedorf and Filippo Inzaghi, Milan find themselves outside the European elite after a long time. One of the most successful clubs with seven European cups to their name, Milan will even be without the second-tier Europa League for the upcoming season.

In order to revive the club’s ailing fortunes, Berlusconi says that he is ready to bring back former manager Carlo Ancelotti. A move for getting former player Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also underway according to the former Italian president. Ancelotti left Milan in 2009 and has since managed clubs like Chelsea, Paris St Germain, and Real Madrid. He is on the verge of being sacked at Madrid and this would leave him free to discuss terms with a new club.

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, is the mainstay at PSG despite being almost 35. His age could allow PSG to let him leave and return for Milan for a nominal figure. “I hope Carletto comes back to us, we are willing to invest in him. I hope there is a good chance he’ll be the next coach of Milan.Galliani and I are not the only ones who want him to come back. All Milan fans I’ve spoken to want him back,” said Berlusconi about a potential return for Ancelotti.”I’m fixated on his return, although it’s a very difficult thing to make happen, and it will take patience.But he’s magnificent on the pitch,” continued Berlusconi about his interest for Ibrahimovic, who scored a whopping 29 goals in just 30 games last season.
