Now that the Rossoneri have finally resolved their managerial issues, they can now step up negotiations with Chelsea for Hakim Ziyech. The Rossoneri have been crippled in the transfer market by uncertainty at the club as new owners RedBird will not take over until September, while managers Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara saw their contracts expire yesterday. Until the last minute, Maldini left the club’s headquarters and confirmed to reporters that an agreement had been reached to extend their contracts until 2024.
“We are happy to be here and ready to plan for a future with even more victories. There’s time, we started a bit late, but we’ll make up for lost time,” Maldini said. Having resolved this uncertainty, according to our colleagues at Tuttomercatoweb, AC Milan were already working hard to intensify negotiations with Chelsea for Ziyech.
