Investcorp executive congratulates Milan on win amid takeover talk: “Happy Easter”

By Oliver Fisher -

Perhaps the biggest hint yet that AC Milan are close to being taken over has arrived and it has come from a source who is no doubt very close to potential negotiations.

After Milan’s 2-0 win over Genoa last night, the executive chairman of the Bahrain-based fund Investcorp – Mohammed Al Ardhi – congratulated the team on the win via a post on his Twitter account.

“Congratulations to #ACMilan back on top of the italian league. Happy Easter to the club, it’s fans and everyone observing this occasion #SempreMilan,” he said, in what was his first tweet in English for some time.

The news exploded yesterday, with Reuters among the authoratative sources to report that Investcorp are in exclusive talks to purchase Milan as per a source close to the deal. The source said the deal to buy the Serie A club is ‘close to being completed’ which suggests that things are moving quite fast.

Bloomberg (via MilanNews) added that Investcorp are close to buying the Rossoneri for a figure of around €1bn ($1.1bn), and added that they may have the backing of a state fund who are worth over $240bn in assets.

  1. Finally, the best news I have read in a decade.

    Now we will become competitive in Europe again. Maybe even become king of europe like the days of old


  2. It is not like’ rich person similar roman Abramovich ,Nasser Al khellafi or manc city owner. Investcorp are Investment company,im doubt if they want to invest in transfer market for AC Milan . It is very different from Chelsea,PSG,manc city or Newcastle owner

  3. MC and PSG have all the money they want, but what they won? They spent hundreds of millions for players and what happened? Money can help, but if you have players who play only for money, than there are no titles. I hope I am wrong, but nothing good will come from this.
