Dalian Wanda, the Chinese group who recently bought a 20% stake in Atletico Madrid, are reportedly keen on investing in Milan.
Super Deporte cites reports from China that say Wanda, led by Wang Jialin, are interested in a 30% stake in the Serie A club.
Wanda would pay something in the region of €150m for the shares, having paid €45m for their percentage of Atletico in a deal confirmed in January.
Milan have interest from a Thai investor but it’s believed the Wanda deal would be preferred by owner Silvio Berlusconi as the firm could help with the building of Milan’s new stadium – Wanda are a construction and film distribution company, among other arms.
It’s said by Chinese publication China Daily that Wanda want to build an ‘empire of sport’ in Europe, having also bought a Swiss sports rights company.
