Default AC Milans fall from grace

One of the great clubs. 7 European Cup titles. Van Basten, Gullit, Baresi, Maldini, Rijkaard and so much more over the years. Gone to complete shit now. Would probably be on the same level as Leicester City or Southampton right now which is a shame. They were throwing the money around like confetti to buy the best players when Berlusconi was president. They need another gangster like this in charge to bring back the glory days.

Leonardo Bonucci, Andre Silva, Franck Kessie and Hakan Calhanoglu.

They were bought by a Chinese consortium.
They're still shit.

The Chinese government have all but frozen the assets of the Milan owner, preventing him putting more money into the club.
I'd say Silvio was delighted to pocket the cash when he could.

How can people with a modicum of interest in football not know that Milan splurged last summer?

Well it seems like they splurged on an absolute pile of shit that nobody has heard of and are around 7th in Serie A as a result.
