Now that the curtain has been drawn on the 2022-23 season, there is expected to be a meeting involving the AC Milan ownership and management to iron out a few things moving forward.
According to Corriere della Sera, a summit will take place between Gerry Cardinale – the founder and number one man of Milan’s owners RedBird Capital – and the director duo Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara.
According to the Roman newspaper, both sides will take stock of the season that has just ended and will establish the plans for the 2023-24 campaign, starting with the summer transfer window and the budget that will be made available.
According to what our colleagues at SempreMilan.it have learned, however, it will also be an opportunity for Cardinale to speak with Maldini regarding some things that the ownership did not like, such as the interview after the second leg derby loss in the Champions League against Inter.
“We are not yet with the top clubs, even if we are in the semi-finals of the Champions League. We have to be good at understanding the moment and making investments now to reach that level,” he said.
These are investments that RedBird not only believes it has made but judges to have sometimes been wasted compared to the purchases that later turned out to be disappointing, such as Charles De Ketelaere above all.
The meeting scheduled in the next few hours could bring everyone closer together or it could also result in a rupture too if the visions are not aligned.
Nonetheless, the feeling is that the minimum objective being achieved last week (qualification for the next Champions League) has further calmed spirits.
