AC Milan’s technical director Paulo Maldini said in an interview that they will no longer issue a declaration to qualify for the Champions League this season. In addition, he also denied the rumors that they might bring in Milenkovic and Age.
"For many years we have announced that we will compete for the Champions League qualification during the preparation period, but we have not succeeded in the past seven years. Together with Pioli this season, we have started a different plan. Our goal is no longer to qualify for the Champions League. Instead, we will try our best to get the best results possible. We will not set the limit for ourselves, but we want to continue our efforts based on the team’s performance last season.” Maldini said.
"Our current signings will give priority to the central defender, because we have some injuries in that position. After Tonali arrived, our midfielder became more suitable."
"Milan are chasing Milenkovic and Age? No. They may be on our list, but frankly, they are not the players we are currently trying to bring in."
