Shevchenko wants move to England

May 12, 2006 17:55 IST

AC Milan's Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko wants to leave the Italian Serie A club and move to England, club owner Silvio Berlusconi said on Friday.

"He wants to leave. He wants to go to England," Berlusconi, who is Italy's outgoing Prime Minister, told a group of students in front of the prime minister's office.

Shevchenko has been frequently linked with a move to English champions Chelsea and recently held a meeting with Berlusconi at his residence.

The former European Footballer of the Year joined Milan from Dynamo Kiev in 1999.
