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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
