Giornale: Gazidis asked Maldini about staying under different role in recent meeting

By Oliver Fisher -

CEO Ivan Gazidis has spoken to Paolo Maldini about the possibility of accepting a different role in order to stay at AC Milan, a report claims.

Last month, we revealed via our correspondent Vito Angele that Rangnick will indeed agree a role as manager – that is the double responsibility of head coach and the man in charge of the transfer market.

Angele also told us that despite the fact Maldini has been widely tipped to leave Milan at the end of the season, Rangnick on the other hand has a different opinion on the matter.

According to Saturday’s edition of Il Giornale (via MilanNews), Milan could call Rangnick if things do not go well in the next few days, thus bring forward his arrival at the club.

If that were to happen though then the Maldini issue would have to be addressed, and the paper claims that Gazidis has already had a meeting with the former captain, asking him to be available to cover another job other than being responsible for the technical area.
