AC Milan have pencilled in talks over extending the contract of forward Daniel Maldini, according to one journalist.
Maldini Jr. was one of 29 players called up to the senior squad for preseason, and impressed against Bayern Munich during his first team debut in the International Champions Cup.
Recently, a report from Calciomercato.com stated that Milan rejected offers from Crotone, Pescara and Spezia for the 17-year-old, who they view as ‘untouchable’.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport‘s Nicolo Schira on Twitter, the renewal talks for Daniel will begin in mid-October.
Schira adds that during the summer the Rossoneri declined a number of loan requests from Serie B sides for the teenager, and that their strategy is instead to let him develop in the Primavera.
He will also be given opportunities to train with the first team squad just like last season as Milan want their gem to be nurtured at home.
In agenda per metà ottobre il rinnovo di Daniel #Maldini con il #Milan. In estate i rossoneri hanno declinato numerose richieste di prestito dalla Serie B, preferendo farlo crescere in casa tra titolarità in Primavera e allenamenti con la Prima Squadra. #calciomercato
