Berlusconi Rejects €1 Billion Thai Offer To Sell AC Milan

According to the most recent reports out of Italy the Thai investor Bee Taechaubol has purportedly made another attempt to persuade Silvio Berlusconi to sell a majority of shares in AC Milan.

Known as Mr Bee the persistent Thai businessman has been pursuing Berlusconi for months and was thought to be close to a takeover of the Serie A club only for the crafty Milan president to pull out of any deal. Berlusconi has also been entertaining interest from a consortium of China based investors but has recently cooled sale talk claiming that he has the best interests of the club at heart.

A report in La Gazzetta dello Sport said Mr Bee had arrived at Berlusconi’s Arcore villa on Thursday night to submit another offer for the Milan club.

This time, instead of trying to purchase a stake in Milan, Mr Bee bid €1 billion for the entirety of the club. However, Berlusconi told his Thai visitor that Milan are no longer for sale, and that only offers for a minority shareholding would be accepted.

Mr Bee left Arcore at around 01:15 CET on Friday morning and his next move is, as yet, unknown.
