Di Marzio: Milan director Maldini will pursue Sanchez-style deals in January

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini is considering making some ‘Inter-style’ purchases in the January transfer window, it is claimed.

We revealed in October that Maldini – along with Zvonomir Boban – are ready to put the youth project on hold for the time being in order to add some experience to a struggling young squad.

Milan still sit in the bottom half of the Serie A table and have scored just 13 goals in the first 14 games of the season, with hopes of a European finish already fading away.

According to the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Maldini and the Milan leadership are not excluding signing experience in January. 

One of the formulas that will likely be explored is the idea of loan opportunities such as the one that saw Alexis Sanchez join Inter from Manchester United during the summer.

The Chile international joined on a season-long loan deal but with the Nerazzurri picking up just £175,000 of his £390,000 weekly salary, as per the Guardian.
