Berlusconi not planning Milan sale

July 13, 2011

Silvio Berlusconi 's daughter and club director Barbara Berlusconi insists her father has no intention of selling AC Milan.

Recent reports in Italy claimed Berlusconi, the Italian prime minister and club owner, was considering putting the Serie A club up for sale. Berlusconi's company Fininvest, which owns Milan, was recently fined €560 million by the Italian courts.

"I want to reassure our supporters the group will be there for the club to help them achieve the ambitious aims we have set out," Barbara Berlusconi told the club's official website.

"One reason is that I'm sure my father's love for Milan is even greater. In the first place, we've got the scudetto on our shirt, which is a big factor.

"We will not limit ourselves to just one target, we want to win everything. We've got what it takes to fight on all fronts, but my personal dream is the Champions League."
