Giorgio Furlani informed Paolo Maldini of the summer transfer budget last week and it is highly likely that it did not go down well, a report claims.
In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about the budget for Milan’s summer transfer window, and La Repubblica (via MilanNews) writes the CEO Furlani was tasked with informing Maldini of the funds he has to work with.
Last week, he announced to the now former technical director that the summer budget will be €35m plus any revenues derived from sales.
Quantifying the budget available is always a complicated process but it was probably expected by Maldini to be higher than last summer, which produced a €42.45m net spend and €56m total spent on signings.
Therefore, the news that there would be even less margin to operate within this summer is likely to have not been received well by the director and perhaps raised tensions further.
