Investcorp biggest shareholder is Mubadala and Mubadala is a wholly-owned investment vehicle of the government of Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Mansour vice-president and deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, is a chairman in the company.

Mansour is the guy that runs Man City

What does that mean, actually?

"Buying shares" doesn't sound like buying the majority of Redbirds stakes in Milan. So they won't have the control over the club. And surely they won't just come up with a couple of millions to pour into the mercato for good fun without having a say how to spend it (in form of installing their own management, which they can't do if Redbird doesn't give them control over the club in form of a majority in stakes).

I wonder what their angle is in this. I can see how they talked about naming rights. But shares? Hm. I'm not an expert, so maybe someone with better knowledge can better explain what's going on?
Journalists seem to report Arab interest in every club on earth lol.

The angle I would think of, if we wanted to give these reports some weight, is that there are two avenues: one is that there is a serious investor that wants to get in on the sports investing action but doesn't have sportswashing incentives and so sees an opportunity with Milan or second, if it's an entity that already owns another club, it could control things through Redbird.

When Sole24ore reports something I tend to give it more weight, but I bet it's more likely there are negotiations for our naming rights and we're shopping for the corporate entities involved in our future Disney World complex rather than the fantasies of Arab money pouring in.

Much more likely this is about the stadium and naming rights. Once we secure the stadium and start building, there’s a good window for Gerry to cash out, so it’s not unthinkable that they’re already looking for an exit contingent on the stadium. But I feel he wants to stay a bit longer until our sporting reputation is back to where it was, that would be in another two or three years.

Red Bird also has a loan to pay back. If any Arab investor is coming, it's probably for shares of the club. The other day when the news came out that Gerry met with Arab investors they also reported there would be a re-organization of the club.

I forgot Singer Jr. still has a seat on the board so Elliott is likely still involved. Elliott+ InvestCorp + Red Bird :lol:
RedBird take the Arab money to pay back Elliot then take a smaller piece of the pie and move on?

Quick turn around, very quick if true... Anyone else find it all s but fishy?

If it happens, it makes sense why Elliott kept a stake, they're laughing all the way to the bank... Might everyone take a slice and ae has been mentioned, "add to their portfolios?

Let's get the stadium over the line please before more upheaval and reshuffling.

With Padre likely away in the summer, new owners and management isnt a great thing after the summer there.

I'm pretty chill, it'll go how it goes... We can certainly thank Elliott and Paolo for getting Milan to a far better place than they were; we can all agree on that surely lol?

Di Marzio:

"Milan have agreed a deal to sign Matija Popovic: it's done. Free transfer. 4-year and a half contract: until June 2028. Popovic will land in Milano in January, as soon as he turns 18, to pass the medical test and officially complete his move" (His contract expires December 31st - rather than the usual expiration in June.)

"Juan Miranda is close to joining Milan. It's expected in the next hours Milan will sort out the final details of his contract. Milan will also be looking to strike a deal with Real Betis in January to have the player available 6 months earlier."

I never understood the mindset of fans who says that only Scudetto and CL matters, nothing else. I would love to win the Coppa Italia. Ever since I am a Milan fan, I have never seen us win that trophy. I would like to win the Super Cup too. Heck, if we can't qualify to CL next stage, I want us to go to Europa League, and challenge for it. I am a fan who wants to win everything that's possible. I don't care if there are extra matches, that will make the Scudetto harder for us to win. I don't care that because of the extra matches, the players will be more tired, and more likely to be injured. The thing is that as long as Pioli is our coach, we will always have injury issues, regardless if our schedule is busy or not. Only way to deal with the injuries is to sack the bald butcher.

The point is, there are some interesting teams in EL as well, who I would love to see us collide with. Liverpool, Brighton, Leverkusen would all be a fun battle. No strong team will go from CL to EL outside of our group. So if we take it seriously, we have a shot to win the whole tournament.

Finally someone who is keeping it real.

Agree x100

We’ll be seeing the American business model + Arab money
We're linked with so many models, investitors , money etc.... reality is a bit harsh, as ACM doesn't have the expected top notch results

But yes building a new stadium requires as much support as possible from everywhere especially that it will bring revenues for a very long period
