Berlusconi: 'Balotelli not a dream'

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi and his daughter both dropped hints of a January bid for Mario Balotelli. “He is not a dream.”

The Rossoneri have been repeatedly linked with the unsettled Manchester City star, who has barely featured under Roberto Mancini this season.

President Berlusconi arrived at San Siro for tonight’s Champions League game against Zenit and spoke briefly to Sky Sport Italia cameras.

“Balotelli? He is not a dream,” smiled the former Italian Prime Minister. “I hope Milan continue like this. I am pleased that my visits fire up the squad, as my players say.”

Barbara Berlusconi, who is on the Board of Directors, was also asked about Balotelli this evening at a different event.

“The transfer window only opens in January,” she said.
