Maldini: No Milan agreement

The Rossoneri legend has been in negotiations with the Chinese group set to take over the club.

He was offered a position with the club of technical director, but was reportedly hesitant.

“My name is mentioned a bit too often, sometimes with false or unverifiable stories,” Maldini told Sky Sport Italia this evening.

“It’s true I met Fassone and Mirabelli at my home, I was told the objective was to take Milan back to being one of the top clubs in the world within five years.

“My history as a man and a Milan player forces me to understand deep down the ideas of the new owners, their projects and how they are thinking of acting.

“I need to hear it directly from them. If I am to put my face, heart and passion into this, working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, then I want to do it for a truly serious project.

“I am ready to transform my life. It is not me who sought out Milan, but them who came to me, so I consider it only right that I get the chance to speak to the new owners before making a definitive decision.

“This is an issue of principle and of justice. I read some reports I made elevated financial requests: I have made no requests at all in that sense.
