Milan’s new owners to offer new deals to Maldini and Gazidis but Pioli’s future remains uncertain

The potential new owners of Milan will be looking forward to keeping some of the principal heads at the club.

Both Corriere della Sera and La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Paolo Maldini, Ivan Gazidis, Frederic Massara, and the club’s chief scout Geoffrey Moncada could be given new deals if the proposed takeover of the club by Investcorp goes through.

Though, Corriere della Sera reiterates that the potential owners have not made up their mind about doing the same with the manager Stefano Pioli. Pioli’s contract at Milan expires in June 2023.

Milan are currently at the top of the Serie A table, contending for this season’s Scudetto. But despite Pioli being backed by the current hierarchy of the Rossoneri, the reported new owners of the club might take some time before coming to a concrete decision on the manager’s future.

The current contracts of the managing director Ivan Gazidis and the technical director of the club Paolo Maldini run out in June this year. The new owners are thought to be against the idea of parting ways with the technical team that has done a fantastic job in recent times. 

As per the reports, Investcorp could complete the takeover of Milan within the next few weeks as the Bahrain-based firm is reportedly getting closer to securing the acquisition of the club for an amount of around €1billion ($1.1 billion).
