Berlusconi Jnr. urges Carroll bid.
The son of AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has urged his father to pull of the shock transfer of the summer by signing Liverpool flop Andy Carroll.
Pier Silvio Berlusconi is targeting an influx of younger players to the San Siro and commented: “This is a new era for Milan. We will continue to get younger while maintaining the culture. Milan still has its superstars. As a future target I’d like Andy Carroll.
“I must admit that for his body build, and after seeing his header in the Euros, I would like to have Carroll at Milan,” he added, reports the Metro.
Berlusconi Jnr. is the president of Mediaset, the Italian TV company that owns AC. In recent seasons he has acted as consultant on the Rossoneri’s transfer business as the legendary club attempt to overhaul their ageing squad.
This summer alone the likes of Flippo Inzaghi, 38, Clarence Seedorf, 36, Mark Van Bommel, 35, Alessandro Nesta, 36, and Gennaro Gattuso, 34, have all left the club and Carroll has been identified as a future leader of the next generation at the San Siro.
The 23-year-old joined Liverpool for £35 million in January 2011 but has failed to have the desired impact at Anfield, scoring just four league goals last season.
Milan are yet to splash the cash this summer, preferring to bring in free-transfers such as Riccardo Montolivo and Bakaye Traore but Liverpool are sure to be tempted if the Serie A side lodge an impressive bid for the England star.
