AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini hints that the fans should not expect important signings in the January window.

The winter transfer window will open in the first days of January. AC Milan are expected to sign a new centre back to substitute the injured Simon Kjaer but that may end up being the only purchase besides the opportunities that the mercato will offer.

In a recent interview, AC Milan technical director Paolo Maldini hinted that the fans should not expected important signings in January. Ours is a project that was clear from the start. We didn’t have the certainty of succeeding, we tried to come up with ideas. We have such a great history that the fans always expect something more, but we must forget the recent history with Berlusconi.

Now the strategy is different and it is necessary to act in this way. It will be a little longer road to get back to being protagonists but let’s say that compared to forecasts, the results came a little earlier.” In any case, the team still manages to be competitive:

We are in line with last year’s results, it is a feat. I remember that at the beginning of the year not everyone considered AC Milan in the top four. We need to realize where we started from but this does not mean that we will give up on our goals. If there is a chance to win (the Scudetto) we will try to do it, it is our job and our DNA imposes it on us“. reports that AC Milan will not make other important signings besides the new defender. Unless a player that can bring a capital gain leaves. Elliott plan is clear: the club’s financial situation must continue to improve and that will be done in a sustainable way.
