Milan's former President Yonghong Li is back in the spotlight as Milan's Public Prosecutor's Office reach out to Chinese judicial authorities to investigate his purchase of Milan in 2017 per Calcio Mercato. Li has been accused of false accounting and the focus of the investigation is to find the source of the money for the purchase.

ANSA via Planeta Milan recall the investigations into Li began over a year ago over 'suspicious transactions.’ The South China Morning Post reported that Li was blacklisted by a Chinese court last year as he was unable to pay debt owed to domestic Chinese firms and he was found to own no significant aseets to be able to cover this. The biggest question mark therefore falls on Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani who sold Milan to Li despite other existing offers given the opaqueness of his finances and his lack of reputation.
