Schira: Milan will have ‘important’ future resale clause in Maldini deal

By Isak Möller -

Daniel Maldini is expected to leave AC Milan on a permanent basis this summer and according to a report, the Rossoneri will have an important percentage on a future move. 

Maldini joined Empoli last summer and after a failed first six months at the club, the loan was terminated and he signed for Monza instead. It turned out to be a fantastic decision, bagging four goals and one assist for the red and white side.

Seeing as the attacking midfielder’s contract will expire in 2025, Milan are looking to monetise his departure this summer and Monza are very keen. According to Nico Schira, only the ‘last details’ remain in the negotiations.

The 22-year-old is set to sign a four-year contract with Monza and in addition to the transfer fee, Milan will have an ‘important’ future resale clause. It remains to be seen how important, but anything over 30% would be really good business for the Rossoneri.

A permanent exit makes the most sense for all parties involved, as Milan wouldn’t be able to guarantee any playing time. And after finally finding some consistency, one can understand why Maldini would like to extend his stay in Monza.

    1. How so? What if we don’t want him back? Our leverage is wasted. A sell on clause benefits is in all cases as we can still use it on a buy back.

    2. ^ What leverage? If Maldini would score nicely and big clubs will start to get interested, Monza will say give us 50 mil. Or even 70, and Milan would have to pay that to get him back, the resell clause wouldn’t matter for Milan then.

      There is no leverage in this case, I agree with Ibrahim, buyback would be better.

      1. And what if he doesn’t “score nicely”? What if he just doesn’t become a player that would be worth 70m, but good enough to command a 15m transfer to let’s say a club like Lazio or Fiorentina? If we have a buy back clause we don’t get anything. It’s damnded if you do, damned if you don’t, it seems.

  1. What makes the most sense is a new contract and a loan for another year. That’s what makes sense.
    Selling a talented player for cheap just as his growth trajectory started picking up makes absolutely no sense.

    1. No mate, it’s not.

      Loan players usually don’t get the same play time as regular players – and that just makes sense – if you would have a choice to let play 2 young guys, one from your team and one loaned from other one, it’s obvious you would prefer your one. They have no business at all to develop loan player then.

      In this case he’ll be a Monza player so they have full business in developing him. Only thing I think should be done is a buyback clause rather than resell. This way it’s a win-win for all parties involved.

    1. The identity is there alright: Internazionale Milan. With all foreign players. I bet they won’t allow any Italians on the coaching staff either anymore. Next they’ll replace the chefs with Chinese…

  2. Why spalletti not even call up maldini? Hes been impressive for while at monza. I dont understand why spalletti call up chiesa and fagioli that we know they are juventus bench warmer and juve not in the best season. I think swiss can beat italy at euro 2024…
