It’s reported Milan’s lack of transfer activity is due to disputes between the current ownership and the potential new Chinese owners.
President Silvio Berlusconi is in talks to sell the Rossoneri to a consortium from the Far East, thought to be led by Sonny Wu.
According to La Repubblica, the reason for a lack of transfer activity is that the two parties cannot agree on targets.
Joint-CEO Adriano Galliani is still in charge of the transfer strategy, but must consult with the Chinese investors and their advisor Nicholas Gancikoff.
It’s thought the Chinese haven’t given the green light to either Villarreal’s Mateo Musacchio or free agent Alvaro Arbeloa, who Galliani would like to bring in.
They would prefer to bring Martin Caceres, a free agent after leaving Juventus, something which Coach Vincenzo Montella has agreed to.
Chelsea’s Juan Cuadrado is also a target for the potential new owners, but Fininvest have vetoed that option.
In addition, the newspaper reports that the signing of the preliminary agreement could be delayed once again, and could now take place in the first week of August.
That would represent yet another delay to a deal which was supposed to be finalised at the start of July.
