AC Milan’s sale to Chinese investors is actually happening. With all the movements happening in Milan’s legal offices, there seems to be a buzz that has not existed on previous closing dates. All signs point to Milan changing hands today.

Silvio Berlusconi and his Fininvest group are all but set to receive the final payment this morning meaning that today will mark the dawn of a new era for AC Milan.

The closing was repeatedly delayed by Li Yonghong multiple times as his first group, SES dissolved after investors slowly left the group - which never seemed to be able to stump up the cash. It seems that Li’s determination has paid off and his numerous delays and down payments have given him the chance to fully purchase the Rossoneri, a purchase that seems to be going through today.

One way or another, something will happen. This could be the beginning of the resurrection of Milan. We shall soon see.
