As the transfer window slammed shut at 20:00 CET yesterday, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara will no doubt have been feeling calm, reflecting on their business.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport reports (via MilanNews), the management completed their work from an excellent summer transfer campaign, bulking out the squad with targeted and precise purchases to provide quality depth.
The directors have been careful in their expenses to rationally continue the reorganisation, but the ambition is higher and now Elliott Management boasts an enviable financial situation. The work both on the pitch and behind the desk is beginning to pay off.
Now that the squad is set for the next few months and the potential title charge, the club need to focus on renewals starting with Calhanoglu and Donnarumma, both of whom are on contracts expiring in June.
In the coming months, Maldini and Massara will test the ground with Ibrahimovic to understand what his intentions will be.
