I Am Interested In Buying AC Milan – Rezart Taci
Albanian oil tycoon Rezart Taci has reignited his interest in AC Milan, and is ready to drill a pipeline that will lead him to take over the club if Silvio Berlusconi decides to sell up.
Despite several denials by Fininvest, the holding company that runs the club, the Rossoneri continue to be linked with the sale of a majority stake. This morning’s Gazzetta Dello Sport indicated an interest from a Libyan party, as well as Taci’s desires.
The Albanian has now confirmed his interest. Taci is ready to invest in further commodities as he seeks to add to his business portfolio.
“I don’t think Berlusconi will want to deprive himself of Milan, but if there is a chance then we will be very interested in buying the club,” Taci told Guerin Sportivo.
Reports suggested Taci had already pumped cash into the club with the acquisition of a number of shares, but the magnate has denied those claims.
“It’s not true that I am already a shareholder, I just have links with the sport side of things such as programmes like Milan Junior Campus, and Milan Parc,” added the Albanian.
“In addition, I am a good friend of Berlusconi and Adriano Galliani.”
Taci had rubbed shoulders with Bologna’s hierarchy during the summer over a proposed takeover, but he was unable to morph his plans into a meaningful move.
“I cannot reveal the real reasons as to why we did not conclude the acquisition,” Taci finished.
