Former AC Milan Chief Football Officer Zvonimir Boban had deals tied up with two midfielders who were both set to join the club, it is claimed.
Boban was fired by CEO Ivan Gazidis back March 7 2020 after an unauthorised interview released to La Gazzetta dello Sport in which the Croatian manager revealed that an agreement was in place with Ralf Rangnick.
During their statement, Milan confirmed that they had dismissed Boban essentially on the grounds of ‘just cause’, something never digested by the former player who immediately decided to resort with legal proceedings, with a courtroom battle set to get underway.
According to Calciomercato.com, the former Croatian international had an agreement in place over the signing of Red Bull Salzburg playmaker Szoboszlai as well Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.
The latter will now go down a different path and a move to his boyhood club seems further away than ever, but Szoboszlai remains a target and could still arrive.
