I dont think they care , if we dont make UCL (which we wont without a very good January) and the debt goes as big as that report projects , they'll sell whoever and not give a fuck what fans think.

Milan's financial position is a pretty fascinating topic for discussion. Unfortunately, I don't think any of us will have the kind of in depth knowledge and information to really make a firm judgment on what our true financial position is.

The amount of debt, even without official announcement, we can probably all tell would be huge. We were operating in loss annually even when we were winning championships every year, and we certainly won't be operating in profit now that we have no money from CL coming in. But what does this mean to our operations going forward? Hard to say. It is easy to speculate that we are going into full blown fire sale mode again in order to "balance the books", as if that worked out so well the last three times we did it. But if Berlu and Fininvest are smart (which they are probably not), they should look at the results from the last three times they did this. After we sold Sheva, Kaka, TS and Ibra, we were able to go a year or so each time operating in profit or at least break even. But the following years became a disaster again because we can't expect to make 60M every year from selling players. There simply aren't enough quality players on this team for that to happen. We are basically putting band aid over a bullet wound and the result showed.

The key to really turning all of this around is to increase our revenue. Without CL participation, own stadium and large enough TV deal, there is no way in hell we can possibly break even. We are already leading Serie A in sponsorship revenue, so the room for growth there isn't much (how many more sponsors can we really still attract?). It is during times like this, a company needs to think about ways to invest money in the right places to ensure its future growth. If anything, we need to somehow find money to sign quality players, build our own stadium and re-establish the Milan brand. Then, and only then, we can have a sustainable future where our books isn't balanced through Fininvest pumping millions every year.

This is why we need our own stadium...

We don't have to worry any more: there is a British entrepreneur, Ismail Ashuk who is dealing with around 30 chinese companies: they are willing to invest 200 million euros to buy 30% of the club, only if the fans invest the other 100 million. He will soon start this crowdfunding, and in the next 2/3 years, AC Milan will be owned by the fans!

There is a British entrepreneur, Ismail Ashuk, who convinced 30 Asian companies to invest 200 million euros. He will now start a crowdfund to raise enough money from the fans to then buy the club.

And more Premier League clubs will jump into Deloitte's top 20 next year I guess. The team places last on PL table will still get a sum of £97m ~ €126m only from TV rights. Outrageous !!!
