Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, the technical respectively sporting director of AC Milan, will expire at the end of the month and they are yet to renew. The negotiations have been ongoing for over a month, a report claims.
The takeover of RedBird Capital made the situation very uncertain but as soon as it was announced, CEO Gerry Cardinale made it clear that he wants to keep the duo. However, there has been little to no progress since.
As a result, the operations on the market have slowed down and this has affected Milan negatively. According to today’s edition of Corriere Della Sera (via SempreMilan), the talks have been ongoing for over a month.
It’s not fully known why it’s taking so much time to renew the duo. Ivan Gazidis, the CEO of the club, is in charge of the negotiations and he’s yet to reach a positive conclusion. Not renewing the duo would be a disastrous start for RedBird, though, which is why the renewals should arrive.
