Now the man himself is also warning there are parallels and the club mustn’t be hasty in pulling the plug.

Milan sale and Allegri return?

Elliott Management Corporation are reportedly in talks to sell Milan to Bernard Arnault for €960m, with Max Allegri lined up as their new Coach.

According to La Repubblica newspaper, the negotiations are well underway for the US hedge fund to sell on the Serie A club.

New Milan, same problems

It took just five matches for Milan’s mood to change from optimism to misery, as Vijay Rahaman wonders if they’ll ever get it together.

After a summer of optimism, with a new Coach, a host of promising young players and legend Zvonimir Boban returning to join former teammate Paolo Maldini in the sporting side of the project, that has turned to doom and gloom within five games. A record of two wins and three losses, with just three goals scored (two of which were penalties), and five conceded, is not pretty reading for the long-suffering fans of the 18-time Scudetto winners.

However, it's not just the results which are making Milan fans miserable, it's the poor performances on the field.
