I regret failing to sign Zlatan – AC Milan chief Silvio

The Swedish striker scored a fantastic goal in Inter’s win over Bologna in the Serie A this weekend.

“I didn’t see Ibrahimovic’s goal but I have been told about it,” Berlusconi said to the Corriere dello Sport.

“It sounds like the goal of a great champion and a player that we wanted here at Milan in the past.

“In fact we even reached an agreement to sign him, but then there was the eight-point deduction saga.

“We weren’t certain that we would be able to play in the Champions League and so the deal didn’t go through.

“Obviously that was a disappointment because I saw the potential that he has now shown.

“He would have been an extra champion in a squad that has many champions and always will have.”
