With the everything proceeding smoothly towards the closing of the sale on March 3, more and more information and rumors about the club’s future are being revealed.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the new Chinese owners are ready to invest €130 million to strengthen the team in the summer transfer market. However, the figure could increase as a result of sales (e.g. Carlos Bacca and M’baye Niang).
Future CEO Marco Fassone and sporting director Massimilliano Mirabelli have been working hard in the past months on choosing players with the right profile for the new Milan. Players such as Kessie, Schick, Bernardeschi, Keita, Dahoud and Kramer have all been observed and are on the shortlist of the future management.
However, Marco Fassone’s first move as Milan CEO will be to discuss Financial Fair Play rules with UEFA. The former Inter director is expected to meet with UEFA representatives after the closing to negotiate a voluntary agreement.
On the basis of this agreement the new Milan ownership will plan investments into the club throughout the next three years, relating them to an expected increase in revenues which will allow to minimize losses gradually.
In short, we are now really in the final stage of this long saga, with the historic date of March 3 approaching and history set to be written.
