Milan's Financial Position
I think for a team of Milan's magnitude though, Elliott will have to invest something. They cannot expect to become financially sound again with empty stadiums, lackluster shirt sales & not qualifying for CL. These (apart from a new stadium) are the fundamentals missing for Milan to become stable again, or by Elliott's needs an attractive team to new & capable buyers.

I don't think it is quite that simple. Certainly, a strong Milan will help fetch better price for Elliott, but how much do they need to invest to build that value? For example, if Elliott can sell Milan right now for 700M euros, and can sell for 1B euros if we are good, the price difference is 300M. But if Elliott has to invest 400M between covering annual losses, funding mercator and building stadiums, then they actually lose 100M by doing this. The thing with Elliott is, since they are not going to be a long term owner, their only interest with us is financial. Whether that means they invest in us and try to build us into a CL contender again or turn us into a mid table team that has a balanced books is something only time will tell.

I choose Elliot compared to previous owners even though Elliout would not splash money like last year or Berlusconi did in the past. Company like Elliot would try hard to make money from Milan and itu could be done ONLY IF they well Milan WHEN Milan are in good-very good situation in term of quality and financial. We would be good financially and have a good quality team. Not like arab-owned club but at least this club would be managed profesionally.

Elliott are working on resolving Milan's debt of €140m. They will either convert it into equity or re-finance the debt themselves. [@MilanoFinanza]

Be careful what you wish for, Elliott say positive sounding things but hedge funds don't offer a sense of security in the way they operate. They are ruthless and they won't hesitate to destroy the club if that's what benefits them.

Really, I'm just praying things pan out as people hope and we get sold to a solid owner. If they don't, in a year or two we could find ourselves in a worse position than this hole we're in now.

I also want to give Silvio a one finger salute. The damage he caused in the past 10-12 years was harmful enough, but if that wasn't enough he's almost destroyed the club with this sale.

If the club is worth €600m now as some say they'll sell as fast as they can.If they run it for a year and spend what it costs to run Milan that always runs at a loss and add in €50m for transfers the club will still probably be worth the same , except theyll be after losing a bit of money.
If they sell off Suso Donnarumma Bonucci Locatelli Silva Musacchio and replace them with free or very cheap players the club will of made money and maybe its value will decrease a bit but they'll prob still get €500-€600m and whatever happens the €180-€200m for players mentioned.I mean I dont think they can just pocket it.But maube theres creative accounting.A
 few sales with extremely frugal signings seems a lot more likely than Pumping in €50-€100m and adding fees for Locatelli Kalinic Bacca Niang Lapadula ontop to use on the mercato.

I 100% agree Dev.I dont think they will so what I'll.mention next, but if selling any player with a market and any asset Milan have seems the best and fastest way for them to make money and a quick couole of hundred million they wont think twice.
The fact Milan are a storied 120 year old football institution means nothing to Elliot and they will do whatever they think benefits them the most.

You know, those numbers aren't too shabby considering what the last 7 years have been like.
