Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has confirmed that his club will be first in line if Barcelona decide to sell Ronaldinho.
“If one day Barcelona decides to sell Ronaldinho, Milan will have priority and will be first in line to secure his transfer,” the former Italian prime minister told the Marca.
“We just have to wait for Barcelona to decide to put the Brazilian up for sale,” he said.
The 2005 Footballer of the Year “would feel good and would be very happy in Milan for numerous reasons,” he added.
The future of the Brazilian midfielder has been the suject of speculation this season, struggled for form this season and has missed three matches for Barca before coach Frank Rijkaard recalled him for Tuesday’s Champions League match at Stuttgart.
Barcelona insist that a calf strain has kept the 27-year-old off the pitch but Spanish media claim the club are fed up with his poor form and conditioning.
Berlusconi also revealed that “there has never been any possibility” that Milan would sell Brazilian playmaker Kaka, who has been a target of Real Madrid.
Berlusconi said: “Kaka has never wanted to leave and I believe that he will never do so… Kaka is the symbol of Milan.”
