Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have put pen to paper and even if the official announcement has still not arrived, it is now confirmed.
After weeks of tension, rumours and negotiations behind the scenes, it is now finally behind us: Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, the two architects behind the Rossoneri’s first Scudetto in 11 years, will stay as club directors.
The agreement was reached only about one hour before the end of their current contract.
Maldini and Massara have been going back and forth with the management over the details of their new contracts, as there have been differences between the sides (differences that are not believed to be of an economic nature) that had to be sorted out.
While Massara was interviewed today at Rimini at the event to kick off the summer transfer market, Maldini was at work for long hours with the lawyers. However, there’s a happy ending.
“Everything is sorted,” Maldini told reporters as he left Casa Milan earlier this evening. “We renewed at the last minute, but we did it. We are happy to be here and for the season. We are happy to program for an always-winning future. How will Milan be? Now let’s see, there is time. We started a bit late but we’ll make up for it. I’m very happy.”
The contracts have been signed but the official announcement will only arrive tomorrow morning. Now with the mercato officially open, Milan can finally start making their moves.
