Berlusconi: 'I'd buy Milan back'

“If it keeps going like this, I won’t deny that sooner or later I’ll buy Milan back,” confessed Silvio Berlusconi at a political rally.

Berlusconi was at a political rally for his Forza Italia party in Udine this evening and spoke to the crowd.

“The way things are going, I’ll end up buying Milan back again,” he said.

Mirabelli at risk at Milan

It’s reported that Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli is in danger of being sacked, as Elliott Management are unhappy with his work.

The director arrived in April last year, and oversaw a €240m summer transfer campaign which included Leonardo Bonucci, Nikola Kalinic and Lucas Biglia.

This season’s minimum aim was Champions League qualification, but Saturday’s defeat to bottom club Benevento leaves them with no chance.

Milan present Elliott guarantees

Milan will reportedly present UEFA with a guarantee that Elliott Management will support the club if Yonghong Li is unable to.

The Chinese businessman took over the Rossoneri in April last year, but he had to borrow money from U.S hedge fund Elliott to complete the deal.

Milan applied for a voluntary agreement on Financial Fair Play but it was rejected by UEFA, in part due to doubts about Li.

American takeover for Milan?

Reports in Italy claim Miami Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross has asked for information about Milan’s situation.

The Rossoneri were taken over by Chinese businessman Yonghong Li last April, but he had to borrow over €300m from U.S hedge fund Elliott Management to complete the deal.

Holding company Rossoneri Sport Investment owes €180m, while the club itself has been saddled with €123m of debt.

If Li is unable to pay back the money by October Elliott can take over the club, so the owner is looking for a refinancing deal.
