Transfer market closed for Milan, says Berlusconi

August 17, 2009

AC Milan will not make any more signings in this transfer window, owner Silvio Berlusconi said on Monday before seeing his side beat Juventus 5-4 on penalties to end a run of pre-season defeats.

"The market is closed," the Italian Prime Minister told reporters at the San Siro after Milan claimed their second victory in 11 pre-season friendlies.

"Milan must find the desire to win in the great players we have."

His team kick off their Serie A campaign at Siena on Saturday while Juventus entertain Chievo Verona on Sunday.
