Paolo Maldini is prepared for a change of off-field leadership at Milan after it was reported the club’s owners are in talks with potential buyers of the Serie A giants.
Technical director Maldini said it was important to keep a focus on on-field matters as Milan chase the Serie A title.
The club legend, who made a record 902 appearances for Milan as a player, spoke about the possibility of a takeover before Friday’s league clash with Genoa.
Milan won that game 2-0 to move top of the table after city rivals Inter briefly went to the summit earlier in the day.
“I know little, but it is normal that in the future of Milan there may also be a sale,” Maldini told DAZN. “I don’t know when that moment will be.
“A few matchdays from the end [of the season], however, I think it is in everyone’s interest to try and think about winning this championship. We also have the semi-final of the Coppa Italia to play.”
It has been widely reported that Investcorp, founded in Bahrain, is in talks to buy the San Siro giants from American hedge fund Elliott Management, which is said to be seeking a price above $1billion.
The Financial Times reported Investcorp has secured an exclusivity period set to last for around two weeks.
