Tuttosport: Monza want to keep Maldini beyond loan spell – the details

By Euan Burns -

Monza are keen on signing AC Milan player Daniel Maldini on a permanent deal this summer, despite only a handful of appearances for the club since arriving in January. 

According to Tuttosport (via Pianeta Milan), the Brianzoli are happy with Maldini’s contributions and think he is worth adding to the team on a permanent basis.

Maldini was on loan at Empoli earlier this season but failed to make any impact, so he was sent to Monza for the second half of the season.

He has scored two important goals from the bench this season, but he is not a regular starter under Raffaelle Palladino. Despite this, Monza are willing to try and secure a permanent deal for the Italian.

In terms of finances, Milan are expected to request the same deal that Empoli had in place. The Azzurri had the option to make the loan permanent in the summer for €4m, with Milan having a €5m buy-back clause in case Maldini developed into a much stronger player than he is right now.

Contacts have been made between the two clubs who have a strong working relationship, and it may not take very long to strike a deal if Maldini is also keen on the move.

  1. If we leave a low set buyback option then I have no issues with this as it gives Monza a better insentive to play him more even though it can currently be argued that his minutes played and stats should be enough as he up untill now has only played 86 minutes for them and still has two goals and one assist 🙂 Considering that Galiiani is at Monza we really should consider striking a much closer working relation with them that will be beneficial for all of us. I want to see Monza in europe in the coming years and our young local players can benefit from getting loaned out to them as they would stay close to their homes and families. An absolute win win situation for us all. Imagine us having a serie c u23 team and then a closer working relationship with Monza it would be hugely benefitial for our resurgence and Monza establishing themselves permanently in serie a.

      1. Probably a likely scenario but maybe the foundation can be laid for a close working relationship and maybe it can last longer due to them being in the proximity of Milano, I would at least hope so as it could benefit us both 🙂

  2. This relationship is good also from the point that Milan and Monza are like 20km apart so players loaned wouldn’t even have to adapt to completely new environment.

  3. These articles amuse me. Replace Maldini’s name with Colombo and that is exactly the same article published after a few matches earlier in the season. Any loaned player that has a decent start at the new club automatically triggers an article about permanently redeeming them. We will see where the chips lie at the end of the season but I suspect the vast majority of loaned out players will return to camp including (gulp) Ballo-Toure and Origi.

  4. Fantastic.

    Maybe we can sell him for a few mill to balance the books while we spend 7 to 10 times that amount on a player with less ability.
