The report from Antonio Vitiello importantly notes that Milan have no debt on the bond markets nor from credit from banks unlike other clubs in Serie A. The report also adds that Milan have taken advantage of factoring with their television rights and their player transfer fees. This indicates that Milan are being more fiscally responsible and putting the club back into a stable financial state.

Another report from indicates that Milan is the only major club in Italy not to hold debt as Juventus, Inter Milan and AS Roma have issued bonds or taken credit worth over 300 million euros. An analysis from Sempre Milan adds that the implication of this is that Milan are not liable to any external investors or institutions at the moment.
