Pedulla: Maldini ‘has spoken to the family’ of Milan transfer target

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini has already spoken to the family of Empoli midfielder Kristjan Asllani, a report claims.

It has been known for a few weeks that Milan are seriously interested in Empoli’s Albanian midfielder and now it has been reported by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla on Twitter (via Milan News) that Maldini has been trying to make it happen.

The president of Empoli, Fabrizio Corsi, recently said that the Azzurri would like to keep Asllani for another season and that is why Milan may have an edge over other interested teams including Inter and Napoli.

The Rossoneri would intend to buy the midfielder and then loan him back to Empoli to continue his development.

Pedulla reports that Maldini has already spoken to the family of the player, presumably to pitch Milan’s project and assure them of how his time at the club will be handled should he choose to join.

  1. Always going with non-italian players even for positions like this…. so sad. I get it if it’s some star or top talent, but for your run of the mill young midfielder with some potential why always go foreign?… we are basically a red inter now, and we hate our own nation I guess…

    1. If Italian players are better – Maldini (who is Italian) will sign them – if not, he won’t. Maldini doesn’t see nationality – he sees talent and that’s who he goes after. Your constant whining of not signing Italian players perhaps could be because they are not good enough. If they were I trust in Maldini and he would sign them no problem.

      1. Remember 3 foreigners rule?
        I want to reverse it and make it 3 from home nation, just to screw w/ team like PSG… oh and us to of course

    2. @Zoro. I agree with you. Many times I wrote here that Italia has great players, very talented, but they can not fully develop, because trainres don’t give them play time. And, I was marked as a rasist. Daniel Maldini, for examle is extremly talented, but nobody cares about that. After Brasil, Italia won most World Cups. That is real proof, that Italians are good football players.

  2. Great talent. A true regista. Milan needs a player with his passing ability from the back of the midfield. All Milan has right now in the midfield are just runners.
    Sign him leave him on loan to keep growing.
    But it would be nice if they also sign their left back Parisi. Kid is a pitbull

    1. I don’t think Milan would welcome the idea of a swap. Colombo is part of our future as a club. He needs to Futher develop
