Paolo Maldini had a meeting with the club’s owner, Gerry Cardinale. In that meeting, Maldini was with Ricky Massara as his right hand man.
The meeting was meant to set the club’s strategy for next season. Transfer market reported that discussions were going very badly especially between Maldini and the head of RedBird Cardinale.
As a result of the lack of compatibility regarding the club’s strategy, Maldini and Massara were fired, not resigned. This meant a total transformation of the structure at the top of the club, which previously Maldini and Massara were in charge of transfers and contract negotiations.
Tuttomercatoweb argued it was part of a power struggle with CEO Giorgio Furlani. This figure took a more central role in the final stages of Rafael Leao’s contract extension.
It will be a painful departure for Milan fans, as Maldini has been at the club his entire career. First, as a player and then as a director since 2018.
Rumors have it that Igli Tare will take up the role left by Maldini, who incidentally has already announced he will not be extending his contract as sporting director at Lazio.
However, Furlani has again become an alternative to control the future direction of the club with the help of Geoffrey Moncada.
