AC Milan's prospective new owners say their ambitions are to take the club "back to the top".
The group, headed by Yonghong Li, signed preliminary documents on Friday to trigger the beginning of their takeover of the Rossoneri from Silvio Berlusconi.
“We hope the fans remain calm," a group spokesman told Milannews.it.
“If we have made this investment it is because we want Milan to return to being on top of the world.
"It is one of our targets."
