Tension over Milan’s transfer plans

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani reportedly has different ideas to the incoming Chinese owners about the January transfer window.

It was officially confirmed yesterday that Sino-Europe Sports will not complete their takeover of the Rossoneri this month, with the closing pushed back until March.

Current owners Fininvest have agreed to work in conjunction with the potential new owners, but Corriere della Sera reports tension with the old regime.

Galliani will be in charge of the January transfer campaign, albeit with input from Sino-Europe Sports.

However, while the current CEO wants to focus on young Italians, the Chinese want more prestigious targets like Cesc Fabregas of Chelsea.

In addition, Galliani considers striker Carlos Bacca to be an expendable asset, while the new ownership sees him as the best player on the team and one of the most marketable.
