AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has attempted to play down the idea that the Rossoneri might miss out on some transfer targets due to the uncertainty after the sale.
While the celebrations of the 19th league title are continuing, there is also rightly a fair amount of attention now being paid to the 2022-23 campaign and what promises to potentially be an even more important season in the tapestry of the Rossoneri’s resurgence.
Milan continue to be linked with a number of different players such as Sven Botman and Renato Sanches of Lille, Charles De Ketelaere and Noa Lang of Club Brugge and Nicolo Zaniolo of Roma among others, but none seem to be imminent and if anything there seems to have been a slowdown generally on market operations.
Interviewed by Rai GR Parliament, Scaroni was asked about the mercato and more specifically the idea that the transitional period to a new ownership could see clubs swoop in and steal transfer targets from under the nose of Maldini and Massara.
“There is no doubt that the change of ownership delayed things and created complexities that weren’t there,” he said (via MilanNews).
“You say we lose so many opportunities, I don’t know. We lose a lot of chatter, when I read the newspapers I don’t see dozens of completed transactions but dozens of hypotheses. We at Milan have a habit of being more reserved than others, and this is due to Maldini and Massara.”
