AC Milan are ready to add a FOURTH Ballon d'Or winner to Carlo Ancelotti's squad.

After Andriy Shevchenko, Kaka and Ronaldinho, Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is pushing to bring Fabio Cannavaro back to Italy from Real Madrid.

The Azzurri captain is off contract in June, but Corriere dello Sport says Berlusconi has given the green light for Milan's moneymen to draw up an 18 month deal to sign him immediately for January.

Milan are in the market for a new centre-half over fitness concerns for Alessandro Nesta and Berlusconi loves the prospect of featuring four Ballon d'Or winners - plus David Beckham - in the same team.
