Soccer: Berlusconi says Milan won't sign Kaka or Balotelli
Serie A club 'can't play monopoly' in times like this24 January, 14:33
"Neither," the ex-premier said when asked on Italian radio whether the seven-time European champions would land the Italy forward or bring back the Brazilian from Real Madrid.
"It's not possible to play Monopoly in times like these.
"(Chief Executive Adriano) Galliani has hope, but then the hard language of the accounts hold him back".
Milan have been strongly linked to talented, temperamental Manchester City striker Balotelli, despite Berlusconi describing him recently as a rotten apple.
The speculation was fueled by reports that the 22-year-old was about to stop renting his home in northern England and that City had lowered their demands for the player from 37 million euros to 25 million.
Galliani said Tuesday that talks to bring Brazilian playmaker Kaka' back from Spain had broken down.
Kaka' has failed to live up to his billing since joining Real from Milan in 2009 for 67 million euros and is not a regular starter for the Spanish champions.
He reportedly agreed to take a big cut in his annual salary, from 10 to six million euros, to help the deal go through.
But Real rejected Milan's offer to take the 30-year-old former world player of the year on loan for 18 months.
The Spanish club wanted to sell the player outright, but Galliani said this was not possible because of tax complications.
The Brazilian had a golden six-year spell at Milan, helping them to Serie A and Champions League titles and becoming a global star.
