They have provided guarantees that their American fund has business continuity and has zeroed its debts.

The club will now be able to compete in the Europa League next season, and might now hold old onto captain Leonardo Bonucci. The defender is being linked with a move away to a Champions League side, but this decision could persuade him to stay at the San Siro.
