AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi admits he wants to bring Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko back to the San Siro.

Reports in Italy have linked the Ukraine international with a return to the San Siro this summer as a possible replacement for injured Ronaldo.

And Berlusconi said on Monday: "It has always been a dream of mine that he could finish his career at Milan.

"I love him like a son. If he wanted to return and if the rules allowed us to, considering with Pato's arrival we have full the number of our (non-EU) players, Milan would welcome him back with open arms."
