Berlusconi: “Milan is not for sale and is worth more than €500m”

15

SILVIO BERLUSCONI has again denied reports that he’s looking to hand over the red and black club to another hands.

The Italian media reported yesterday that the Singapore billionaire Peter Lim has submitted a €500m offer for the majority stake of Milan but the rumours were later quashed by the holding company Fininvest, which is owned by Silvio Berlusconi.

Berlusconi was the guest on the talk show ‘Porta a Porta’ in the episode that aired on Thursday evening and he discussed the sale talks and reiterated that he has no intention of selling Milan – certainly not for the price that appeared in the papers.

“Milan is not for sale and is worth a lot more than €500m,” Berlusconi, who made his first TV appearance in 14 months, told the host of Porta a Porta, Bruno Vespa. “Let us not joke around here, as certain things are sacred.” Barbara Berlusconi said that 30% of Milan is worth around €300 mil which means that the Berlusconi family has a €1 billion price-tag on the club.

Forbes estimates that Milan is worth around €745m but Milannews.it states that the Rossoneri have a debt of €256m. It’s possible that Milan will use foreign investors to finance the project of the new stadium so Silvio might sell small shares.

$ 500 million for 49 % of club might convince Silvio, he’ll still be in charge

If you really not gonna sell any of it, just say “It’s not for sale”, period. Just stating that shares are worth much more than this or that sends a message “give me more”, which I believe is the case. He is greedy after all.

Other thing, if you don’t want to sell any part of your “beloved” club, because it means much to you then why are you degrading it’s name? Fine, don’t sell it, just show how much you want it to be the best again, make some moves you old plastic faced *****.

Pardon my anger.

We are pretty frustrate with the ordeal; however, I wouldn’t call Berlusconi greedy for asking more for his beloved club. Milan is Berlusconi and vice versa.
As a businessman, an owner and politician he has more things to consider than what we the fans know or want.
And selling a club as big as Milan is not the same as selling a Nintendo on Ebay.

I used to think like that, but I’m getting frustrated. I know and agree with some statements you’ve said and maybe greedy is strong of a word, but he was convicted for tax evasion after all, and if not “greedy” then any other synonym can be applied.

I’m not a business man nor politician, but he has a record that sometimes it’s hard to contemplate how really dirty he is. Money, it’s surely all about the money.

If Milan is his beloved club, he shouldn’t see it just as money making machine.

Ebay comparison is a bit over the top.

I do agree with you, our choice of words and comparisons were over the top. We as fans can only accept what is given to us and has little to no power to say yay or nay.
What we can do is to give our unconditional support to this club.

Obvious Silvio won’t sell AC Milan but he should have atleast aired out the rumours about Seedorf exit.

Remember, he is a politician too, and like most politicians he will never say YES or NO in broad daylight and in front of microphones.
