Former AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has said current club Monza would be interested in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kaka after being awarded promotion to Serie B.

Monza will play their football in Italy’s second tier next season as one of three clubs to move up following the premature end to the Serie C campaign alongside Vicenza and Reggina, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Berlusconi, a four-time former Italian prime minister, took over Monza in 2018 — a year after he sold Milan to Chinese businessman Li Yonghong — and has big ambitions.

“Ibrahimovic and Kaka have been transfer targets for us and, for non-footballing reasons, we couldn’t. But you never know,” he told Telelombardia.

Berlusconi also said Monza, who were 16 points clear when the season was brought to a halt, are not simply content with staying in the second tier.

“I never had any doubts about it [being awarded promotion],” he told local newspaper Il Cittadino. “We started top, we stayed there until the postponement.

“Now we will set up a top team to play in [Serie B]. Promotion to Serie A depends on many factors, but we know some of them well and we’ll do everything to exploit them.”

Berlusconi, who is worth an estimated $5.8 billion and is a four-time former Italian prime minister, was Milan president from 1986 in 2017 and oversaw them win five European Cup/Champions League trophies.

He signed both Kaka, in 2003, and Ibrahimovic in 2010, for Milan with the pair winning Serie A titles in their maiden campaigns with the Rossoneri.

Italy’s top two tiers, Serie A and Serie B, will re-commence on June 20, with the lower leagues having seen their 2019-20 campaigns cancelled.

'No complications' for Ibrahimovic


Milan announce that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is recovering well from a calf injury and will undergo more tests in around 10 days’ time.

The forward had flown back home to Sweden after the injury in training, but returned this week and had the examination today.

A statement from the club confirmed the tests showed “no complications” with regards to the strain of the right soleus muscle.

The recovery process is going well and he will have further tests in around 10 days’ time.

Ibrahimovic was going to miss the Coppa Italia semi-final with Juventus anyway next week due to suspension.

However, if the Rossoneri were to reach the Final on June 17, he would be eligible for that big match.

“AC Milan announces that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone a check-up following the injury to his right soleus muscle,” read the statement.

“His recovery is proceeding well, without complications and a new check-up is to be expected in about ten days.”

Ibrahimovic returned to Sweden


Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic will reportedly spend a week in Sweden with his family after suffering an injury in training.

The Rossoneri faitful held could exhale after learning that the 38-year-old will be back for the proposed resumption in June, as the tests after the injury scare in training revealed a muscle problem in the right calf.

After fearing damage to the Achilles tendon, an injury that would have kept him out for months, the club confirmed that the former Sweden international will be back after a month of rehabilitation, just in time for the rescheduled Serie A resumption.

In the meantime, both La Stampa and La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Zlatan took off yesterday, heading to Stockholm, Sweden.

He will spend the next week in his homeland with the family before returning to Milan for a new check in the middle of next week.
