Since the beginning of the week there have been a lot of news and updates about AC Milan so we try to sum up the most important things we've found all over the web.

THE SALE

Silvio Berlusconi is trying to sell AC Milan, but it is still not clear who's going to buy it and which percentage of the company. Thai investor Bee Taechaubol said recently he'd spend his money for AC Milan but it's unlikely that all the money would come from his patrimony since he's not rich enough to acquire more than 20-30% of the company. This dilemma would be solved thanks to Doyen Sports, Taechaubol's partner, which recently talked with Silvio Berlusconi about a sport collaboration (that will be operative even without the sale). It will take at least a couple of weeks before hearing some reliable news about this situation.

THE MARKET

A lot of rumors about the future market for AC Milan (fueled by the probable collaboration with Doyen Sports)! First of all, the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic: he'd like to return in Milan and that's not a surprise, but he's very expensive for AC Milan finances in this period. His transfer price wouldn't be high, but his salary won't be less than € 6.5m/7m and this could be a problem even though Galliani and Berlusconi should be able to find a solution to that. The alternative: Paulo Dybala or Carlos Bacca. Their transfer fee would be much more expensive than Zlatan's, but their salary would be cheaper. Complications: they're both young and many European clubs are interested in acquiring them (especially Inter for Dybala).

The coach market is on fire too! Since Inzaghi is leaving at the end of the season - thanks for everything you did for Milan, Pippo - Galliani is looking for a reliable replacement for him and he's monitoring some interesting names: Carlo Ancelotti (please Adriano, bring him back to Milan), Vincenzo Montella, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Unai Emery. We won't know anything more until the end of the month.

THE TEAM

The only relevant news about the team is Montolivo's surgery to finish his tibia reconstruction after last summer injury with the National team. He'll be out until the end of the season and will be ready for the beginning of the next one.

THE STADIUM

The first step towards the approval of the project by "Fondazione Fiera Milano" was made last week, but now there's the last one. The new stadium is the most important thing for AC Milan's future and it would be crucial to attract sponsorships, investments and fans, but Berlusconi would need a little help to be sure to finish his project.
