Chinese double Milan investment?

Milan’s prospective new majority shareholder Li Yonghong has reportedly doubled his investment from €100m to €200m as talks with Paolo Maldini are lined up.

Corriere della Sera explains general manager Marco Fassone wants Maldini to spearhead the new-look Milan after Il Sole 24 Ore claimed Li had upped his initial deposit into the club.

Fassone will then fly to China in mid-October to meet a number of sponsors looking to support Sino-Europe Sports’ project.

After that, some of the investors are expected to go back to Milan with Fassone, where they will also meet Silvio Berlusconi and publicly reveal their identities.

Finally, Tuttosport writes Massimo Mirabelli will cease to be Inter’s chief scout on Friday ahead of becoming Milan’s new sporting director.

However, he will not start work with the Rossoneri until the beginning of October, at which point he will open dialogue with the consortium.
