Very large Chinese investment in the Italian football industry hit the news in summer 2016. Both historic Milanese clubs, Inter F.C. and A.C. Milan have been acquired by Chinese investors: in the former case by 100% takeover by a single wealthy man diversifying his economic empire, in the latter one by a syndicate still under construction, led by a Chinese State investment fund and a private holding (15% each). 
Two very large and prominent transactions in a very visible social, cultural and economic arena, conducted with different styles by two different types of investors.
Still, both acquisitions might be framed within an underlying common strategy designed by the Chinese government and the Communist Party, with a view to pursuing the Chinese global expansion in all sectors of society and the economy.
