Berlusconi dismisses Milan sale rumours

The 77-year-old has insisted that he has no intention of selling the Rossoneri, despite reports this week to the contrary
AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has dismissed reports that he could be on the verge of selling the club.

The former Prime Minister of Italy has owned the Rossoneri since the 1980s, overseeing a period of success both within Serie A and in Europe.

However, rumours circulated earlier this week that he was weighing up a sale, only for Fininvest, the club's holding company, to staunchly deny the claims.

And Berlusconi has now dismissed the reports once more, telling reporters in Rome: "I don't want to sell AC Milan, I can reassure Milan fans."

Milan are enduring a turbulent season both on and off the pitch, with Berlusconi's daughter Barbara, a long-time board member, stepping into a more senior role earlier in the campaign.
