AC Milan are slowly shifting focus from the Scudetto celebrations to the upcoming season, hoping to replicate the amazing work we saw this past campaign. And for that to happen, they need a few signings.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are working hard on the matter but there is one thing that has slowed them down: their expiring contracts. The renewals are yet to be signed and that has slowed down the mercato a bit.
This was the main focus of Tuttosport on the front page this morning: “Maldini, the yellow for the renewal slows Milan down. Still pending the signatures of the two directors”. QS had a similar angle: “Stop Milan, big names waiting. Maldini and Massara still without renewal. Market stopped”.
Gazzetta Dello Sport focused on Milan’s wish to replicate the Scudetto season and a potential formation change: “A Milan for the encore. Botman-Sanches, and Pioli prepares a new formation”.
