Davide Santon: Newcastle's Italian full-back is liked by AC Milan's owne

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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
