Milan presdient Silvio Berlusconi admits he still hopes to bring Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho to the Rossoneri.
However, Berlusconi concedes that is unlikely to happen as Barcelona seeem unlikely to sell the Brazilian.
“The dream, it’s useless saying, is still Ronaldinho, but Barcelona president (Joan) Laporta said that should he sell him to me, not only would he not be club president anymore, but he could be exiled,” Berlusconi told Gazetta dello Sport.
“In the immediate future I don’t think we can sign him.”
Berlusconi also refused to rule out a move to sign Real Madrid midfielder Emerson.
A move for the Brazilian midfielder collapsed last week after Real pulled out, but Berlusconi has hinted they could revive the deal.
“I only know the negotiation was set to be closed,” added Berlusconi.
“We thought we had already signed Emerson, but I don’t exclude the possibility to sign him in the next days.
“He’s a quality player who would complete our midfield.”
Emerson has urged Milan to make fresh bid for him as he seeks to leave Spain.
“I thought everything was sorted out, but my agent called to say there were problems,” Emerson told Gazetta dello Sport.
“He told me to stay calm and be patient, so I took his word for it. As I wait, I am back training with my team-mates.
“Lets wait and see what will happen.
“I have another two years on my contract with Real, but if I have the choice then I certainly want to leave. I have spoken of Milan many times, they are my objective.
“In this moment I don’t think of money, but only to feel good and find a different environment than this one.
“I look for respect, something I think I deserve for what I have done in football.
“If Real do not lower their economic demands, they must be prepared to accept the responsibility and consequences of keeping me here.”
