Paolo Maldini insists “nobody has called me” from Milan’s new owners Elliott Management, but he has “always been open to talk.”
The club icon has been repeatedly linked with a role at San Siro, especially after Yonghong Li lost control to US hedge fund Elliott for defaulting on debts.
“Nobody has called me” from Milan, Maldini told Mediaset Premium.
“I have always been open to talk, so I’ve never closed the door on anyone for at least a dialogue.”
Maldini is busy anyway, having formally joined the commentary team of streaming platform DAZN.
It’s increasingly likely that another former player, Leonardo, will be given the position of technical director, with Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis a strong option for the role of CEO.
