AC Milan will put everything on the line in the next four games as they hope to win a first league title in 11 years, but off-field matters continue to dominate the headlines.
This morning’s edition of Il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) describes this as a month that the Rossoneri have been missing for too long, because there are 30 days in which the team can dream and fight for something big.
One month, four weeks, four games and 360 minutes is what separates Milan and Inter from knowing which set of fans will line the Piazza Duomo to celebrate the title. The Rossoneri retain a two-point advantage on the Nerazzurri but the derby win in February means they have the head to head so would win the league in the event of a tie on points.
The issue concerning the sale of the club could also be resolved in a month, with the negotiation between Investcorp and Elliott proceeding quickly. The signing has been postponed, but only by a few days to allow the lawyers of the two funds to better organise the contracts.
The official closing will probably arrive at the end of the season because everyone is aware of what is at stake on the field. In short, the Rossoneri could really be ‘almost on another planet’ within a month.
