The Frenchman, worth an estimated £86 billion as per the Forbes rich-list published in July, sees serious potential at Milan and has plans to make major investments in regards to transfer funds, the academy and sponsorship deals if he is able to purchase the club.

Elliot Management have been the current owners since 2017 and are believed to have no interest in selling the club - even turning down offers upwards of £500 million in recent times.

Milan have been something of a sleeping giant in recent years, where they have been absent from the Champions League after underperforming domestically.

Along with cross-city rivals Inter, the club have plans to knock down the famous San Siro stadium and move into a modern 60,000 capacity stadium situated right next to the site of the old, legendary one.
