‘Whatever Milan need, they’ll get’

Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has said that the club will be supplied with whatever sum of money it needs in the transfer market this summer.

Berlusconi today continued negotiations with Thai businessman Bee Taechaubol in Lugano over a sale of 48% of the Rossoneri.

The transfer of shares is hoped to be finalised in the next eight weeks and Mr Bee announced yesterday that he wouldn’t give any interviews during that period.

“The eight weeks predicted? We will try to do a lot before then and there is a chance to do so,” Berlusconi said to after the meeting.

“We’ve developed plans to work in full cooperation. We also clarified the time required.

“We’ve read the final contract. And we also have the ability to operate in the market in order to strengthen Milan, which is the primary objective."

“€150m for the transfer market? I don’t know how much will be needed, but whatever is necessary will be provided.”

Berlusconi also spoke to RSI and underlined his belief that Milan will return to the summit of European football, while having a dig at Juventus.

"Everything went well, I don’t think it will be necessary to return to Lugano,” Berlusconi said.

“I can assure you that Milan will become great again. Milan is part of my heart and I will come back to invest.

“It’s often a matter of cycles, but our last league title was only a few years ago…

“We will get back to winning ways and we will return to Europe.

“With me, Milan have won five Champions League and European Cup titles, whereas Juventus have only won one of their five finals.”
