AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi insists his eyes are not closed to the possibility of foreign investment in the Rossoneri.

Berlusconi has battled to cut costs at the Italian giants and shipped out a virtual team of seasoned professionals last summer, while Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were sold to Paris Saint-Germain, to balance the books.

The purse strings were loosened a little last month with the arrival of Mario Balotelli from Manchester City, but Berlusconi is still keeping a close eye on costs at the club.

And he will not rule out opening the doors to investors.

"The club is part of my family, my daughter Barbara is part of it now. I want it to stay like that", he told ANSA.


"However, this does not mean that I rule out the possibility of foreign investment.

"If the economic crisis continues, things could change."

Milan have recovered from a lacklustre Serie A start this season to currently sit fifth in the standings.

The Rossoneri are now just three points off the all-important third spot, which brings with it Champions League football.
