AC Milan’s potential new owners Investcorp are expected to invest a bit more in the transfer market compared to Elliott Management, according to a report.
According to Pietro Mazzara’s latest column for MilanNews, Milan fans should expect a ‘more aggressive strategy’ in the mercato compared to Elliott because it is the very nature of the two funds that differentiates their operations.
The Bahrain-based Investcorp are mainly involved in private equity while the American fund are more geared towards restructuring companies and reselling them to make a profit. The Singer family have done a tremendous job with to make them more sustainable and virtuous, so much so that they haven’t made any capital injections in the last 18 months.
At the end of 2021 in Bahrain the idea of an expansion into the sporting world from the Middle East was born, which means that Milan could be about to have an ‘impressive economic power’ behind them.
What transpires from circles close to Investcorp is that they want to win and wants to bring Milan back to the elite level, but also still following the path traced by Elliott in terms of sustainability. There will therefore be big expense, but not on the level of PSG and Manchester City.
