MILAN (AP) - AC Milan President Silvio Berlusconi denied he is considering selling the club during a rare visit to the team's training ground Friday to give his troubled squad a pep talk.

Reports in Italy say that Berlusconi is becoming disinterested with the club and is considering selling to the owners of Guangzhou Evergrande, the Chinese side coached by Marcello Lippi.

A delegation will visit Milan in December.

Berlusconi arrived at Milanello via helicopter and watched several minutes of the training session before approaching the players.

Berlusconi spent 10 minutes talking to the group in an effort to boost morale ahead of this weekend's Serie A match against Napoli.

Milan, which won the league in 2011, is in 12th place after losing six of its first 12 games this season.
