Did Friedkin want Milan before Roma?

The Friedkin Group is in the final stages of the takeover for AS Roma, but there are reports the same company tried to purchase Milan.

Statements from the Giallorossi confirm a takeover is imminent, as the due diligence stage has now been completed, bringing the James Pallotta era to an end after nearly eight years.

Lille: 'Elliott want to sell Milan'

Lille President Gerard Lopez claims Elliott Management intend to grow his club, whereas they “funded Milan to be bought” at a profit.

The US hedge fund is in control of Milan only because previous owner Yonghong Li defaulted on repayments on a €300m high-interest loan he had used to purchase the club from Silvio Berlusconi.

Elliott expanded their football investments by helping Lopez to fund Ligue 1 side Lille with another large loan of €140m.

However, the two approaches may well be different.

Li: 'Milan bankruptcy fake news!'

Former Milan owner Yonghong Li has hit back at Ivan Gazidis’ claim that Elliott Management saved the club from bankruptcy, calling it “fake news”.

The hedge fund seized control of the Rossoneri after the Chinese businessman defaulted on his €300m loan in the summer of 2018, before quickly fading back into obscurity.

However, he recently opened an official account on Twitter - which is banned in his homeland - to relay his side of the story to Milan fans.

Yonghong Li breaks Milan silence?

Former Milan President Yonghong Li has seemingly broken his silence with an extraordinary offer to “help” the club. “I'm so sad at the way things are going now.”

He purchased AC Milan from Silvio Berlusconi in April 2017 with the aid of a €330m loan from Elliott Management Corporation, but defaulted on repayments and the club was essentially repossessed in July 2018.
