Well, isn’t this fun.
With less than two days before Yonghong Li has to pay Elliot Management back the €32 million he borrowed from them, reports indicate that Li is in New York City to try and revive the negotiations with Rocco Commisso.

Can all of this be over soon?
Commisso wants to buy Milan, and Li needs to sell it to someone before Elliott Management begin the process of taking over the club. Elliott is going to sell it to someone else anyway, might as well sell it to Commisso now before any deal gets further mucked up.
This is all embarrassing and dumb. Make it go away, please.
