Sources close to Berlusconi, says Tgcom, suggest the Milan supremo has been mesmerised by Riquelme's form in the Copa America and he would love to see the midfield schemer in a Rossoneri shirt. Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is also a huge fan of Riquelme and tried to sign him while he was in charge of Parma.

Riquelme is returning to Villarreal after the Copa following a six-month stint with Boca Juniors. He has no future with the Yellow Submarines after falling out with management, though his non-EU status may thwart any potential move to Milan.
