Manchester United want Italian legend Paolo Maldini to be a part of the club’s board
According to the Spanish outlet Diario AS, Manchester United want to bring Paolo Maldini to the club and be a part of the club’s board.
Following Sir Alex Ferguson’s arrival, there had been a succession of managers for the preceding nine years, each with a different playing philosophy and level of expertise, who brought in their own players before leaving.
Maldini, who is most renowned for his amazing defensive playing career, advanced to the position of technical director at AC Milan in 2019 after moving up in 2018. Ac Milan won their first Serie A championship in over ten years three years later.
With little to show for United’s almost £1 billion in expenditures since Ferguson’s 2013 retirement, it appears that Sir Jim Ratcliffe will soon assume leadership of football affairs after his 25% ownership of the team is confirmed.
During his tenure as technical director, Maldini successfully recruited several players by following a well-defined transfer policy. Milan signed Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao during his first summer, and the following summer they added Sandro Tonali and Fikayo Tomori. each young artist. Every signing was a triumph.
Manchester United is gradually improving under Erik ten Hag as they are currently sixth in the Premier League, seven points behind league leaders Manchester City, despite their dismal start and several injuries. Now, United might finally start to contend for championships in the upcoming seasons if they can sign a director of football like Maldini.
But with his extensive knowledge of football, someone like Paolo Maldini will ensure that the manager gets what he wants during the transfer windows. Even if there is still much work to be done, Sir Ratcliffe is at least making sense with his decisions and vision when figures like Jean-Claude Blanc and Maldini are mentioned.
