Real Madrid has thrown quite a lot of money this summer, bringing in re-enforcements, and it might be time to sell a few of their own to balance their books.
AC Milan might be on the up with the appointment of a new coach, a new technical director and a director of football. The club is expected to shop in a market just below the top level after missing out on Champions League football. But the newspaper reports suggest contrary to the above sentiment. It is believed that the club might be in negotiations to bring in players from a certain Spanish side. And it might just involve the mighty Real Madrid.
Maldini in Madrid
Paolo Maldini, the new technical director at AC Milan, travelled to Madrid with Zvonimir Boban, the Rossoneri’s new chief football officer. Maldini returned to Italy with a sense of optimism after meeting with Real Madrid.“The trip has gone well,” the legendary Italian told Sky Sport Italia at Milan Linate Airport.
“We’ll always bring good news for [the new head coach, Marco] Giampaolo, we are optimistic about this Milan.” The Spanish media suggests that AC Milan might be looking at players who are not in Zinedine Zidane’s plans. Dani Ceballos, Borja Mayoral and Martin Odegaard are the trios in question.
“I would prefer Spain”
Borja Mayoral, one of Rosonneri’s rumoured targets, has spoken about his future. The Spanish Under-21 international has admitted that his time at Real Madrid might be coming to an end. “I’m open to all kinds of clubs,” Mayoral told EFE.
“I have already experienced Germany [at Wolfsburg] and I liked it. Yes, it is true that I like Spain very much because I have already played there. I know LaLiga Santander and the language. I would prefer [to keep playing in] Spain.”
The AC Milan project might be a very interesting project for youngsters. With an exciting manager, a revamped structure and the history behind the crest, the resurgence of the Rossoneri might become a reality. Considering everything, it might not be long before the red and black strips reach the pinnacle of Italian football.
