The Italian full-back started his career with Milanese rivals Inter and has been mentioned by Berlusconi as one of a number of players he could see in a new, younger AC side.

Roma striker Mattia Destro was another to be name-checked by Berlusconi, who says he wants to make his club a force at home and abroad once again.

"We will build a team with young players who can help AC Milan to be a leader in Italy and in Europe," Berlusconi said to Mediaset Sport.

"Davide Santon and Destro? I gave my world to (Milan vice-president) Adriano Galliani I wouldn't reveal any names, but these are players we like."

Berlusconi also sent out mixed messages over Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri, whose side are currently seventh in Serie A.

"Allegri? I have a great relationship with Allegri, a relationship of friendship and cordiality," Berlsuconi added. "He can leave? Much depends on the results that he will obtain."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
