TMJ reportedly approached to buy stake in AC Milan

KUALA LUMPUR: Johor Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim is said to have been approached by Italian Seria A club AC Milan to become the club's minor shareholder.

According to Italian media reports, AC Milan president Yonghong Li had approached a Malaysian Malay to buy a stake in the club.

However, there was no official confirmation if the person of 'Malay origin' quoted by Italian media is Tunku Ismail, who is also the Johor Darul Ta'zim's (JDT) owner.

"The prince is looking for Milan. The search continues for the name of the partner to support Li Yonghong in the management of the Via Aldo Rossi company, starting from a minority partner and perhaps in the future the club's president," the PremiumSportHD reported Wednesday (June 13).

Meanwhile, Italy's football news site stated that Milan was set to be taken over by investors from American multinational company Goldman Sachs. - Bernama
