Berlusconi dreams of Ronaldo and title

Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi has once again claimed that it's a dream of his to sign Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and to win the Scudetto.

Earlier this month, Il Cavaliere revealed his admiration for Ronaldo on the basis that the former Ballon d'Or winner always finds a way to make the difference.

Starring as a guest on Italian TV show Il Processo di Biscardi, Berlusconi said: "Dreams are allowed and sometimes they transform into reality.

"If we were to win the Scudetto, the next transfer window could lead us to add one or two champions. The chance of signing Ronaldo isn't remote because a player can decide to leave his club."

Asked about Milan's season so far, he said: "Milan are a team who have come out of a period of incidents thanks to a big squad that we have readied and that has allowed us to line up a well-seasoned team.

"We are at the top of the table pursued by this extraordinary Napoli side. Our objective is to get to the end of the season and still be at the top of the table."

Finally, Berlusconi had a few words of praise for Max Allegri.

"I liked him from the first moment I met him. As a person he represents the identity and style of Milan well.

"A President like me, who has been in football for a long time, might sometimes have ideas on particular moments in games, but even so you can't expect the Coach to always do what the President wants.

"With Allegri, we talk often and engage in long reflections on the telephone, always finding ourselves in agreement. As a Coach I believe that he could be the fourth in this series after Sacchi, Capello and Ancelotti."
