The president of Mediaset (the holding company that owns AC Milan) - has acted as a consultant on the Rossoneri's transfer business in recent years.
Milan are in the midst of a mass squad overhaul and have already released veterans Filippo Inzaghi, (38), Clarence Seedorf, (36), Mark van Bommel, (35), and Gennaro Gattuso, (34), on free transfers, but have yet to sign any big name replacements, opting instead to sign Riccardo Montolivo and Bakaye Traore on free transfers.
“This is another Milan, a younger Milan, and it’s right every now and then to change and start a new project,” said Piersilvio Berlusconi in the Corrieredello Sport.
“Who would I like to see at Milan? Well it’s too obvious to say Andres Iniesta, so let’s just say I was impressed with the physicality of England striker Carroll. I would love to sign him.”
Andy Carroll enjoyed an encouraging end to the season, scoring goals in the FA Cup and putting in performances that earn't him a spot in England's Euro 2012 squad. His exploits and goal during the 3-2 group stage win over Sweden seems to have prompted Milan's surprise interest.
