Madonna has her sights set on buying a Greek island from multibillionairess Athina Onassis, according to reports.

The pop superstar has allegedly visited remote Skorpios, where tycoon Aristotle Onassis famously romanced opera diva Maria Callas and Jackie Kennedy.

The Ionian isle is now owned by Aristotle's granddaughter Athina, who is planning to sell the Greek paradise for a whopping $355m (€294m) - $340m (€281.8m) more than the businessman paid for the land in 1962.

And, according to American tabloid the Globe, Madonna is interested in buying the island, which features three villas and a small chapel.
