Paolo Maldini, former technical director of AC Milan, guest on the ‘PoretCast’ podcast of Giacomo Poretti, the former coach and legend in the Rossoneri’s history, revealed a surprising story about Lionel Messi. He stated that the Lombardy club tried to recruit him after he left FC Barcelona.

Paolo Maldini admitted that AC Milan had taken steps to recruit Lionel Messi when he became a free agent. Discussions lasted 10 days, but unfortunately came to nothing. “For ten days [en référence probablement à 2021]we tried to bring Messi to Milan, but then we realized it was impossible. Now it’s too late, but a footballer like Messi is a spectacle for everyone, and when I read that he could go to Inter, I was bitter,” said Paolo Maldini.
