AC Milan move step closer to takeover


RedBird Capital Partners are closing on a takeover of AC Milan and expect to reach an agreement on the purchase of a majority stake this week.

As reported by Tuttomercatoweb, RedBird CEO Gerry Cardinale signed the paperwork on the acquisition from Elliott Group on Tuesday morning and an official announcement confirming a preliminary contract could be made later in the day, or on Wednesday.

It would see RedBird take on a 70% stake in the club in exchange for €1.3 billion, leaving Elliott CEO Paul Singer in control of the remaining 30%, and the next steps will see the deal finalised over the coming weeks.
