According to last night’s reports, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have been sacked by AC Milan following a tense meeting with owner Gerry Cardinale.

The meeting was intended to define strategy for next season, but several sources claim that it went very badly, particularly between Maldini and RedBird chief Cardinale. Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com now reports that Maldini and his right-hand man Massara were sacked by Cardinale, rather than the initial suggestion that they had resigned. This means a total transformation of the structure at the top of the club, where Maldini and Massara had been in charge of transfers and contract negotiations.Tuttomercatoweb argued that this was part of a power struggle with CEO Giorgio Furlani, who played a more central role in the final stages of Rafael Leao’s contract extension. Early suggestions for a replacement include Igli Tare, who has announced that he will not extend his contract as sporting director at Lazio. However, Furlani is once again an alternative to take further control of the direction of the club’s future with Geoffrey Moncada’s help.
