The AC Milan world has been rocked by the news that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are soon to be officially sacked as directors at the club.
According to what our colleagues at SempreMilan.it are reporting, the farewell of Maldini and Massara as the technical and sporting directors of the club means that the incoming operations carried out and not yet finalised by the duo are frozen.
Daichi Kamada has already accepted a €3m net per season deal with Milan that will run until 2027, but will now have to wait for ratification by the next Rossoneri sporting director, whoever that may be.
On the other hand, the track leading to Ruben Loftus-Cheek could perhaps be definitively closed as Milan will now have to reassess and agree once again on a list of targets to go for when the window reopens.
This is backed up by Calciomercato.com, who state that the news could have an impact on the transfer strategy too. Maldini – after receiving the news of his dismissal by Cardinale’s – had to cancel a meeting already scheduled with Loftus-Cheek’s agent at Casa Milan.
A new discussion will also have to be planned with the intermediary who is handling the negotiations for Kamada’s arrival at Milan, which was also scheduled for yesterday afternoon too.
At the moment the negotiations set up by Maldini and Massara for this market session will be the subject of a pause for reflection. The new team want to evaluate the pros and cons of each individual operation, also taking Stefano Pioli’s assessments into consideration.
