AC Milan could be set for €1BILLION takeover by Chinese investors

It’s reported Silvio Berlusconi has privately admitted that selling Milan to Chinese investors is a ‘done deal’.

Despite the head of one of the parties thought to be interested distancing himself from any takeover, it’s believed that an agreement has been reached with some Chinese investors.

AskaNews claims that Berlusconi has said in private meetings that “the sale of 75 per cent of Milan is a done deal”, with only a few months needed to iron out the details.

AskaNews believes that the Chinese government is playing a large role in the operation, in order to promote football in the country, with the long-term aim of making the national team a major world power.

Milan are said to be the most popular team in China, so the acquisition of the club would be viewed as an important step along this road.

Berlusconi is reportedly set for another meeting with the investment group at his Arcore residence in the next 24 hours.

Reports in Italy suggest Silvio Berlusconi has agreed to sell a 75 per cent stake in the Serie A club

Silvio Berlusconi is on the verge of agreeing the sale of 75 per cent of AC Milan to a group of Chinese investors, according to reports in Italy.

The Serie A club owner and former Italian Prime Minister bought Milan in 1986, saving it from bankruptcy and leading them to eight league titles and five European Cup successes.

But now Gazzetta dello Sport claim that “the sale of 75 per cent of Milan to the Chinese has been agreed on”.

The group of buyers is though to include Hong Kong businessman Richard Lee, who was seen watching Milan alongside Berlusconi at the San Siro in October.

It is, however, believed that Berlusconi’s daughter, Barbara, will remain on the board of directors after the sale.

  《米兰体育报》表示AC米兰已经接近被出售了,就在意大利当地时间周四,贝卢斯科尼在阿尔科雷同一个可能的买家进行了一个小时的晚餐会面,这个人就是李文辉。实际上李文辉在十月份就曾同贝卢斯科尼接触,观看了AC米兰同佛罗伦萨的比赛,并进行了沟通。《米兰体育报》援引意大利媒体AskaNews的消息称,贝卢斯科尼同李文辉的会面已经达成了最直接的结果,“出售75%股份给中国人已经是板上钉钉了。”目前差的只是一些具体的细节,这还会继续磋商,完成股权交易之后芭芭拉还会是CEO。

  不过《米兰体育报》同时也提到了意大利安莎社的报道,安莎社据称得到贝卢斯科尼身边人传出的消息,那就是贝卢斯科尼并没有就股权转让问题同任何投资者进行真正意义的谈判。
