Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani moved to reassure the Rossoneri's worried investors.

"To get the books back in order it would be enough to sell Kaka to Real Madrid for £55m," remarked Galliani to the consternation of Milan's money men.

Shareholders are believed to be angry at the club's recent form on the pitch and in the transfer market.

According to a report in La Stampa, some investors are unwilling to contribute money to this summer's transfer budget.

"Last year they begged me to renew Dida's contract and adhere to the requests of Emerson, Cafu, Serginho and Favalli," hit back Galliani.
