Milan plan Chinese expansion

It’s believed Milan are planning to create a football school and other facilities in China.

The Rossoneri were bought over by a consortium led by Yonghong Li in April, and have spent over €200m in the transfer market already this summer.

According to La Repubblica, their plans aren’t simply limited to buying players though, and the Diavolo are planning to expand in China.

The newspaper speaks of a 39 page document outlining plans for a ‘Milan Village’ in China, with a hotel, a museum, shops and a restaurant.

In addition there will be a stadium, youth pitches, a medical centre and a video analysis centre.

The Rossoneri hope to tie their brand to the development of Chinese football, as the Beijing government wants to host the World Cup by 2030 and win it by 2050.
