The key week of the Milan it has now begun, perhaps with a bit of delay on the transfer market projects of the club which, in fact, is now in danger of losing some of its goals such as Renato Sanches for example. It will have to be the week of the contract renewals of Maldini and Massara that can kick off the summer negotiations, but first of all it will be necessary that Gerry Cardinale come back from the USA or give his final green light from there.
LOOKING FOR FUNDS – As reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport the new Rossoneri number 1, as well as leader of RedBird Capital, is busy these days a New York in the United States where it is putting in place a large fund raising work (capital search) which allows you to complete the acquisition of Milan after signing. The deal is not in doubt, but the more capital Cardinale manages to raise, the lower the impact of the a loan that will instead be financed by Elliott, who has offered to “help” Red Bird in the acquisition. A “vendor loan” in technical terms that will depend precisely on the amount raised.
New York-Milan Gerry Cardinale has returned to the United States and is engaged in fund raising, the search for capital for the AC Milan operation. The club has been valued at 1.2 billion and part of the money will be financed by Elliott. The extent of that vendor loan will depend on the amount raised in these weeks. In Italy, meanwhile, one wonders why there is no news coming here. Milan’s daily life proceeds regularly with the Elliott management: the men of the Scudetto, each in his area, remain at work. There is certainly no paralysis of activities. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, however, will start the week thinking that there are only ten days left for their contract to expire. To put it sharply: in ten days they will be unemployed. To put it in a worrying way for the AC Milan fans: from July they could sign for another team.
Cardinal and Maldini The news of the last few days certainly reassures those who hope that Maldini and Massara will continue to make decisions for Milan. The renewal of their contracts is expected this week and optimism is widespread in this sense. Maldini is in direct contact with Cardinal, with whom there is a feeling from the days of the first meeting. “We spent three and a half hours together,” Cardinale told the Financial Times. It was great”. That feeling should lead to the signing in the next few days, obviously with a Cardinal-Elliott confrontation, consent of the fund and general clarification on the balance between Ivan Gazidis and Paolo Maldini. A sensitive issue, where something can always go wrong. This is why the final sprint puts some apprehension on the Milan fans.
Sven and Renato Waiting to understand the grand finale, a few words about the transfer market, the other big theme. In the transfer market, one day can be a lifetime. Milan had identified two clear goals for defense and midfield: Sven Botman and Renato Sanches. The details of the negotiations are in the article on the side, but the meaning is clear: Milan risk losing at least one of their first goals for Botman after a six-month long negotiation. And, especially in the case of Renato Sanches, it would not be easy to find an alternative with international quality and experience at an affordable price. In the Netherlands, meanwhile, Noa Lang asks the same questions. The agents of the Bruges attacking midfielder made two appointments with Maldini and Massara, in which they expressed a clear will: Noa with a red and black shirt can be seen very well, as he made clear in public statements. In other situations a signature would have followed, instead silence fell.
Prediction So, welcome to Judgment Week. Prediction: Lukaku, Di Maria and Maldini will have an answer on the future in seven days. For the AC Milan transfer market, well, July is long …
