GdS: Milan’s recruitment strategy drawn up – mix of youth and experience the way forward

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan leadership have outlined their plans regarding what will be a crucial summer of recruitment for the club, a report claims.

With the team highly unlikely to achieve a top four finish this season, many news outlets are predicting another revolution of sorts once the campaign is over.

However, there is also persistent speculation regarding different visions for the club moving forward, something Paolo Maldini hinted at after Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Fiorentina.

The belief among the press is that CEO Ivan Gazidis wants to continue the wishes of owners Elliott Management by signing young players on lower salaries to develop, while Maldini and Boban know that experience is needed to balance the squad.

According to Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Gazidis now agrees that a mix of youth and experience can be the winning solution.

Maldini holds the belief meanwhile the component of the experience is the one that is most missing from the current squad, which is why the club could start with Ibrahimovic’s renewal.
