Galliani: AC Milan having “an important summer of transfer activity”

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has admitted that he is happy to see the Rossoneri spending big money again.

Galliani spent 30 years at the club after Silvio Berlusconi purchased Milan back in 1986.

Yonghong Li completed his takeover of the club to bring the Berlusconi era to an end, and his since spent over €200m to overhaul the squad.

“I am relaxed, as we sold the club to a buyer who is engaging in an important summer of transfer activity,” Galliani told Radio Sportiva as he celebrated his 73rd birthday.

He has since become the new president of Mediaset Premium, the television company owned by Berlusconi.

“I was at Milan for many years, then Fininvest (Berlusconi’s holding company, ndr) sold the club and I left along with them. I will never leave this group.

“I miss football, of course, but I’d miss our television station more. I will be at San Siro for the second leg of the Europa League tie with Craiova.

“President Berlusconi always asks about the situation and Milan will remain forever in our hearts.”

Galliani was asked about Gianluigi Donnarumma, who finally renewed his contract with Milan following a long and drawn out saga.

“I don’t comment on transfer operations, but as a Milan fan, I am happy that he stayed.”
