SIVLIO BERLUSCONI says he hopes to keep one of Alexandre Pato and Robinho this January.
Milan are expected to play against Roma tomorrow 4-3-3 with one of Kevin-Prince Boateng and Giampaolo Pazzini in the centre of attack and Stephan El Shaarawy and Robinho supporting on the wings.
This may be Robinho’s last game at Milan as he’s of high demand in Brazil. Alexandre Pato may join him on the flight to the Samba Land but Silvio Berlusconi says he wants to keep one of the two at Milan.
“Pato and Robinho? I still hope that we can keep at least one of them. We will see what happens. We know what it’s like when someone has Saudade,” Silvio Berlusconi told reporters on Friday. “New signings? I really like Niang. He reminds me a bit of Balotelli, but I hope that he’s better than him on a personal level.”
Berlusconi did not visit the players at Milanello but he will attend the game at Stadio Olimpico tomorrow and this evening he’ll meet the players. “I have been called-up as always,” added Berlusconi. “I came here to see if our players are ready.” Milan are on a great form and a win against Roma will get them to sixth place. Milan are still hopeful of finishing in the first three in Serie A and a win tomorrow could prove vital.
Milan are expected to strengthen in the summer and Massimiliano Allegri said earlier today that one of the January signings will be a player that has already featured in the Champions League this season.
