The Chinese investors may be trying to acquire the entirety of A.C. Milan, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports. At yesterday's meeting between Galliani and Berlusconi at Arcore, the new possibility of a 100% acquisition was brought to the table. The deal would be enacted next week, with all of A.C. Milan handed over to the Chinese in one swift transaction valued at around €500 million.

News sources in China are already claiming that the sale is a done deal, with Robin Li of Baidu offering $437 million for a majority stake in the club, but fans are left to sit and hope as reports are flung around left and right, leaving fans disappointed every time the deal isn't finalized.

The current transfer situation is blocked without the sale of Bacca or the signing of the preliminary agreement with the Chinese, meaning the club cannot sign anyone, including Matteo Musacchio and Piotr Zielinski, both of whom A.C. Milan has an agreement with.

Currently, Milan fans are praying that the deal will eventually go through, and the club can return to its former glory with new acquisitions from the market.
