Milan’s owners Fininvest have insisteed that the club is not for sale.
Albanian oil tycoon Rezart Taci has revealed he would like to buy the Italian giants.
Taci says he has held talks with Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi, but admitted the Italian president has no plans to sell his stake.
“There is a deep friendship with Silvio Berlusconi and Adriano Galliano, in addition to a collaboration program fot the future,” Rezart Taci told Guerin Sportivo.
“I have the €700million to buy Milan and I intend to strengthen them.
“I have already talked about it with Berlusconi. He told me he didn’t intend to sell, but I know that if I came into the matter he would take my offer into consideration.
“The money wouldn’t be a problem. My company is used to taking on relevant commitments and seeing them through to the end.”
Taci even suggests that he withdrew an earlier bid to buy Bologna because he found out Milan might be available.
“You have to be careful of mistakes,” added Taci.
“Everything was done for Bologna, but I didn’t change my mind because of financial reasons.
“Did someone advise me to wait for Milan? Let’s just say that as a Rossoneri fan I considered it best to be patient for a bit longer.
“Why should I mess around the Bologna fans if in the meantime a bigger door could open?”
Fininvest – who are Berlusconi’s holding company – have now issued a statement that they are not looking to sell Milan or any part of the club.
“In relation to the repeated indiscretions in the press, Fininvest see themselves forced once again to deny, in the most peremptory and absolute way, that there exists any talk of sale, even partial, of their shares in AC Milan,” said the statement.
