AC Milan president Berlusconi admits regrets missing out on Ibrahimovic

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi admits regrets missing out on Inter striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic two years ago. He said: “In fact we even reached an agreement to sign him, but then there was the eight-point deduction saga. “We weren't certain that we would be able to play in the Champions League and so the deal didn't go through. “Obviously that was a disappointment because I saw the potential that he has now shown. “He would have been an extra champion in a squad that has many champions and always will have.”
