Reports: Scudetto considered unrealistic by management; unprecedented recruitment method being used

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan leadership are not aiming for the Scudetto despite the team’s form since the resumption of Serie A post-lockdown, it is claimed.

A meeting took place at San Siro on Thursday in which CEO Ivan Gazidis plus directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara answered questions on different topics including the summer window.

On the objectives for the season, MilanNews report the management stressed that the target is the Champions League, but it is not a disaster if that does not happen. The important thing is that steps are taken forward in the project.

On the same subject, PianetaMilan add that Maldini has asked the players to ‘not set limits’. While it is clear that the team is not equipped for a Scudetto challenge, there is the presence of a strong ownership behind them who are not asking to win immediately, but to plan for a strong future.

Continuing from that, Milan’s strategy continues to be focusing on young players, something which is an absolute novelty for a big Italian club.

Gazidis is convinced that it is the right way to go, reiterating several times that two to three more windows of a precise path will be needed. However, change can bring excitement and while it is still necessary to reduce costs where possible, everything is moving in the right direction.
