Berlusconi never considered selling Milan

SOFIA - Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Thursday he has never considered selling AC Milan, the Italian Serie A club that he owns.

"I've never had plans to sell Milan, which I don't look at from an economic point of view, but from a point of view of affection," Berlusconi told reporters during a trip to Bulgaria.

There has been speculation that media tycoon Berlusconi will have to sell some of his assets after a court recently fined his Fininvest holding company 750 million euros for corrupting a judge in a takeover battle.
