WATCH: Milan buyer lands in Italy to finalise sale

By Oliver Fisher -

Is AC Milan’s long-awaited sale about to be finalised?

Calciomercato reporter Daniele Longo is at Milan’s Malpensa airport, where Yonghong Li has landed this morning, at around 7.20 local time. 

Check out the live video:

The Rossoneri were supposed to pass into Li’s hands back in the Autumn, only for the investor to fail to gather the finances.

After making two initial payments of €100million each, the investor – who had encountered the Chinese government’s resistance against the exportation of capital – was assisted by the American Elliot Fund, which was happy to loan him the remaining €330m needed for the sale. 

Right-hand man Han is already in Italy, having met with Marco Fassone and Alessandro Mirabelli yesterday. They are set to be the CEO and sporting director respectively of the new-look Milan.
