Commisso: 'Milan on my terms'

Rocco Commisso insists negotiations to buy Milan will continue, “but only on my terms and I would never accept being a minority shareholder.”

The takeover talks seemed to collapse last night when Yonghong Li suddenly changed his mind, asking to keep not 15-20 per cent of the club, but at least 25-30 per cent.

Is Europa League exclusion that bad?

Milan have been excluded from the Europa League, which will cost them around €20m, but it’s not necessarily all bad news.

UEFA finally announced its verdict today, excluding the Rossoneri from European competition for one season for Financial Fair Play violations.

There was expected to be a fine of up to €30m too, but that does not seem to have materialised.

Milan, what happens now?

As Milan are excluded from Europe for Financial Fair Play violations, Football Italia looks at the likely next steps for the Rossoneri.

The long-awaited decision by UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body was handed down today, with the Rossoneri given a two-season ban.

However, it only applies to one competition so if the Diavolo qualify for Europe next season - and improve their financial situation - they can enter European competition.

A history of Milan under Yonghong Li

From the very start, Yonghong Li’s takeover of Milan for €740m has been shrouded in controversy, confusion and very little clarity.

Chinese businessman Yonghong Li completed the takeover from Silvio Berlusconi on April 13 2017 for €740m, including €220m in existing club debt.

He had begun negotiations in August 2016, but was only able to secure the closing after numerous postponed deadlines thanks to a high-interest loan from US hedge fund Elliott Management Corporation of €303m.

‘Berlusconi not to blame for Milan’

Pier Silvio Berlusconi, son of former Milan owner Silvio, insists his family aren’t to blame for the club’s current situation.

The Rossoneri look set to be banned from Europe for a year and fined €30m, while Yonghong Li - to whom Berlusconi sold the club in April 2017 - appears to be struggling financially.

“I know very little,” Pier Silvio Berlusconi told AlaNews about the UEFA situation.

“More than a judgement I can express my displeasure as a Milan fan, but I can’t say more than that.

According to financial newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, the verdict will be handed down on Wednesday.
