Sky via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan's CEO Ivan Gazidis is keen to keep Paolo Maldini at the club this summer despite the arrival of Ralf Rangnick. The report notes that the CEO would want the two to work together and one proposal is for Maldini to takeover as Chief Football Officer - the former role held by Zvonimir Boban.

As we reported previously here, the initial reports noted that Maldini would be offered an Ambassador role at the club which he would almost certainly turn down. Maldini has often said he would not accept a role where he is a mascot.

La Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are meanwhile reporting that Maldini could be offered a role similar to that of Nedved at Juventus where he could be the vice president. Here, Maldini would have more institutional than operational duties.

Maldini spoke to DAZN via Sempre Milan after Milan's 4-2 win over Juventus and said regarding his future:

“Will there be room for me? I don’t know, I want to get well at the end of this season, we still have a lot of games, we can take away a lot of satisfaction, then we can decide our future.”
