CorSport: Man City president among possible key figures in Investcorp’s Milan takeover

By Oliver Fisher -

There is an interesting note about Investcorp’s approach to buy AC Milan involving the Abu Dhabi government, according to a report.

MilanNews reported earlier today that the negotiations between Milan and Investcorp over the transfer of majority shares is proceeding quickly, given that the parties have been discussing and exchanging documents for weeks, and Investcorp are happy to pay the €1bn asking price.

According to what il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) are reporting this morning, one of Investcorp ‘s main shareholders are Mubadala, a sovereign fund with over $350bn in assets that are from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The CEO of this fund is Khaldun Al-Mubarak who is also the president of Manchester City. According to the newspaper, this aspect is of no small importance because it could be that Investcorp are being used as a vehicle by the Abu Dhabi government to enter Italian football, without arousing suspicion regarding rules on double ownership.

  1. If we suddenly start having good relations with city transfer deals and ect it would be a new low, imagine us becoming a feeder club it can’t be.

    1. and tbh he owns minority stocks in Investcorp. He is Vice Chairman of Mubadala, who owns 20% of Investcorp. Minority won’t affect us.

      1. Abanjo, Khaldun Al-Mubarak is not the owner of City and he does run several organizations not just a football team. But it absolutely could be a way of backdooring something like this. 20% ownership of a fund worth roughly 40 billion, if the company is worth it’s assets, 20% is probably one of the highest ownership %. His voting power is probably 2nd to the actual fund owners.

    2. Feeder for? Guardiola Will vomit see our starter quality like saladmaker , junior,brahim. Even Calabria are far below Cancelo. Only maignan ,Theo,kalulu worth for Guardiola as depth not starter. The positive side are on AC Milan maybe they can get manc city unused player like gabriel

  2. Man City owner funding Potential buyers of Ac Milan huh?
    Bad news for Milan Then,
    We are stooping too Low for Arab Money.Amongst the Top teams in Europe top tier Leagues, Arab owners are treated with contempt as it should Be!

  3. I’m surprised to see some of the negative comments towards Arab ownership. Feeder club for City? Who came up with that nonsense. We should be thrilled we may be sold to a club with owners that will invest heavily in the club, bring financial stability and build our own stadium as they did with City. Isn’t that what we all want? Or do we want to sell to another owner like Lee who didn’t have any money then complain why we can’t sign player lol. Come on fellas. It’s a global not regional game. If we want to compete with the worlds best clubs again we need owners who will spend – like City, PSG, etc…I’m sure none would complain of these new owners came out and said they will self-fund a new stadium and buy top players for example like Haaland, M’Bappe etc… very disturbing comments and very sad to hear
