There is a difference in opinion between Paolo Maldini and Ivan Gazidis regarding the potential signing of Sven Botman, a report claims.
According to Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews), Botman seems to be moving further away from Milan and not just because of the competition from Newcastle United. Within the Rossoneri there is a difference of views on the profile of the Dutchman between Gazidis and Maldini.
The technical director hoped to have more freedom and power on the market, especially after winning the Scudetto and with the new ownership, but Gazidis will remain in office and he has a say in matters related to signings.
In the Botman case, the former Arsenal chief executive believes it is not necessary to spend a figure close to €30m in a department where Milan already has players like Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu and Simon Kjaer.
Instead, Gazidis thinks it would be preferable to look for a younger and less expensive profile and invest resources in other roles.
