Adriano Galliani, managing director of Milan from 1986 to 2017 told a nice anecdote in the columns of Corriere della sera:

“In 1991, we were in debt and just before Fininvest went public, a big brake had been put on: all investments had to be approved by Berlusconi as a preventive measure, we had been notified by mail. That same evening, I bought Marcel Desailly for 10 billion lire, without anyone knowing. I hid for a few days because I had not informed the president of this operation. But Boban was injured and it was the only year in which we achieved the double scudetto-Cup of champion clubs. »
