AC Milan patron Silvio Berlusconi is delighted with the imminent capture of Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano.

The deal for the Italy international could go through today.

"Yes, we will have Cassano," declared Italian PM Berlusconi yesterday at a government function.

"I'm glad the team is playing so very well."

However, while happy with the arrival of Cassano, Berlusconi admitted disappointment with one of Milan's stars.

"It's too bad that Ronaldinho at the moment is not always responsive on the field and in training," he added.
