Berlusconi wants younger AC Milan team

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has called on coach Leonardo to only target younger players in the transfer market.

Milan has been criticized in recent years for relying heavily on players older than 30, including Paolo Maldini, Clarence Seedorf and David Beckham.

Berlusconi told the ANSA news agency on Tuesday that the team “will look for players who are under 23.”

He did not specify whether that would affect Beckham’s chances of rejoining the team following the end of the MLS season. Beckham reluctantly returned to the Los Angeles Galaxy following a loan stint with Milan, and has said he wants go back to Italy.
