Kevin Prince Boateng feels that it would be a 'great achievement' if AC Milan are able to win the Serie A title and he would like to stay at the club.
The Ghana international is at the San Siro on a co-ownership deal from Genoa, but some impressive performances have led to CEO Adriano Galliani suggesting he will take the player of a permanent deal come the summer.
Milan are competing on both fronts domestically, with the club at the semi-final stage of the Italian Cup and still leading the race for the Scudetto.
Upon hearing Galliani's comments, Boateng told La Gazetta dello Sport: "I'm glad of his words, it feels like a dream and I'm looking forward to signing.
"I helped AC Milan with my arrival, because I'm a midfielder with special characteristics, which weren't there before.
"In return, now everyone knows me. AC Milan has helped me a lot in my popularity.
"If we win the Scudetto I'll dance the moonwalk dressed like Michael Jackson, maybe on the pitch.
"During my career, I've never won anything important, so the Scudetto would be a great achievement and we can also win the Italian Cup."
Balotelli and Ronaldo rumours
Milan president Silvio Berlusconi recently admitted that he was eager to sign a big-name player should they win the title, citing Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo as a "dream signing."
Manchester City's controversial striker Mario Balotelli has also been touted as a potential signing, but Boateng felt that the volatile Italian would not be the best idea.
"I think that going in the newspapers and tabloids often for not football reasons is not very nice, it does not match the concept of 'Milan style'," he added.
"Cristiano Ronaldo? I love him as a player in all its forms, on and off the field. And he's the only one, with (Lionel) Messi, able to represent football around the world.
"The thing I most admire in him is his ability to manage the moments of pressure. If he would come, I'd be happy."
