GdS: Three reasons why Maldini and Massara haven’t renewed Milan contracts

By Isak Möller -

As things stand, it’s the final day for Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara at AC Milan, at least based on their contracts. The reality is more nuanced, of course, but it’s also clear that the whole situation has been a failure. 

In addition to delaying multiple operations on the market, it has caused great anger among the fans and a resolution is needed as quickly as possible. The fact that we have arrived at the final day is not a good sign, but not a sign of worry either.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), there are multiple reasons behind this situation: the sale of the club, the demands of Maldini and time-zone struggles. The latter is rather trivial, of course, but not insignificant.

Maldini has asked for more power in the decision-making process and while he won’t have his demands satisfied, he will get slightly better terms than the previous contract. The relationship with Gerry Cardinale, it should be pointed out, is still excellent. And that is positive for the future.
