Eden17Hazard17 4 years ago Edited Chelsea FC 156 4195 The former Fifa presidency candidate has launched a controversial idea to help the Serie A giants become competitive once more. Controversial agent Mino Raiola has advised AC Milan and Inter to consider joining forces if they want to be able to compete with the big guns in Europe again. The representative of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli among others feels the Serie A giants currently lack the financial resources to challenge for top honours in Europe and believes merging would give them the best chance of returning to the top. "If AC Milan and Inter want to be able to compete with the very best again, they should consider a merger," Raiola told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "They were the richest clubs in the world at some stage, but are now struggling to do anything without their rich owners. [Milan CEO Adriano] Galliani complains to me about the Arabians, but he forgets they have been acting like the rich Arabians for 20 years with Berlusconi. "The arrival of some rich Chinese will not help them forward either. The fans will continue to see two 'half' teams. But if both teams were to merge, you would have one club with a turnover of €320 million rather than two clubs with a turnover of €160m. "Like Paris Saint-Germain are considering getting rid of the Saint-Germain addition to become FC Paris, Milan should have one club FC Milan that is recognisable across the world." Inter and Milan have both been struggling in Serie A this term and currently sit joint 10th in the table with 26 points from 20 games. Showing previous versions of this text.
