Barbara Berlusconi is reportedly already lining up Milan’s replacement strategy for Adriano Galliani, pinning hopes on Demetrio Albertini and Paolo Maldini.
Galliani’s exit from the San Siro side has not been confirmed, but it is believed that the veteran, who has also acted as Vice-President, will be out at the end of the season.
The Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that director Berlusconi, daughter of President Silvio, is leading plans for the Rossoneri’s change of direction in Galliani’s exit.
It is reported that Berlusconi is looking at former players Maldini and Albertini, although initial talks have not offered promise.
Where Maldini is seen to be after an operational role and not that of technical director offered to him, an approach for a directorial role for Albertini is seen as even harder, due to his current contract with the Italian Football Federation.
Milan are also seen to be looking at Roma director Claudio Fenucci to come in and work in collaboration with Michele Uva as CEO.
Meanwhile, it is also seen that a replacement for sporting director Ariedo Braida is being sought, but that options between Fabio Paratici and Daniele Prade are looking unlikely, whilst Sean Sogliano and Pietro Leonardi are not high on the list.
