The Italian club's shares had reached their highest level since September on the announcement of the project, at 0.911 euros on Monday, but fell as all six English clubs withdrew following a furious backlash from fans and football authorities.

After a fall of some 4.23 percent on Tuesday, at around 0800 GMT Wednesday the price was down a further 10.77 percent to 0.779 euros on the Milan stock market.

Manchester United shares fell on Tuesday in New York, dropping six percent and erasing most of the previous day's gains.
