Berlusconi says he wanted Zlatan

Published Add your comment

AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has revealed his regret at being unable to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic before the start of last season.

The Sweden international was the Rossoneri´s main transfer target in the summer of 2006 but his move to Milan was halted by the club´s involvement in the Italian match-fixing scandal - which saw them docked eight points prior to the 2006/07 campaign.

Ibrahimovic, who left Juventus after they were demoted to the second division for their part in the same scandal, instead signed for Milan´s city rivals Internazionale, telling "Ibrahimovic is a champion. We would surely have bought him if it weren´t for the unjust punishment we had to deal with last summer."
