Berlusconi holds up AC Milan sale of top 'five under 25'

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi wants incoming coach Pippo Inzaghi to build his team on five, young players.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Berlusconi wants Milan to focus on youth and sees five U25 players - Mario Balotelli, Mattia de Sciglio, Bryan Cristante, Stephan El Shaarawy and Andrea Poli as the team's future.

Berlusconi has already turned down an offer from Benfica for Cristante in recent days, while Arsenal are keen on Balotelli and Real Madrid are eyeing De Sciglio.

But he now wants Inzaghi to focus on youth and is prepared to resist big offers to keep his 'five under 25' together.
