Monza chief Adriano Galliani has spoken of his two big misses in the transfer market as AC Milan vice-president.
Galliani spent 31 years managing Milan with Silvio Berlusconi, building five European Cup-winning teams between 1986 and 2017.
He said, “(Carlos) Tevez was supposed to arrive, but he never turned up. We'd already done a deal for Roberto Baggio five years before his arrival at Milan.
“We also tried to take Del Piero before he went to Juventus, and he's one of the two players I most regret not signing.
“Padova offered him to us but wanted 5bn lira, a very big fee for such a young lad, and we weren't convinced.
“The same goes for Cristiano Ronaldo: he was 16 and Sporting CP asked us for something like 16 or 17bn.
“We also courted Totti for a long time, but he never wanted to leave Roma."
