Albanian oil tycoon makes pitch for AC Milan

Albanian oil tycoon Rezart Taci is prepared to purchase AC Milan for $1 billion.

Albanian oil tycoon Rezart Taci is prepared to purchase AC Milan for euro700 million (US$1 billion),even though Silvio Berlusconi has not put the club up for sale.

Taci told Wednesday’s Gazzetta dello Sport: “We’ve spoken about it. He told me that he doesn’t intend to sell,but I know that if he turns in that direction he would look at my proposal.” Milan sold off its top player,Kaka,to Real Madrid this offseason to stave off financial crisis,and the club is off to a rough start in Serie A with only nine points through seven rounds.
