Berlusconi to revamp Milan?

There are reports Milan are planning huge changes, as Max Allegri and Adriano Galliani are at risk with Paolo Maldini due to come in.

The situation deteriorated after last night’s 2-0 home defeat to Fiorentina, which left them languishing in 11th place.

The Rossoneri are currently 16 points off the Champions League places and just three clear of the relegation zone.

The team is in a pre-match ‘ritiro’ retreat from today to prepare for the games against Barcelona and Chievo, but Allegri is for the moment holding on to his bench.

According to several reports, including the Ansa news agency, Barbara Berlusconi is taking a commanding role in revamping the side.

She held a meeting with her father, President Silvio Berlusconi, to urge changes throughout the staff after disappointing transfer campaigns.

This would put general manager Galliani at risk as well as Allegri, as it’s rumoured Berlusconi will ask Paolo Maldini to return as a director.

Maldini has been vocal about his problems with the Milan hierarchy, specifically Galliani, and complained he was never offered a position at the club after his retirement.

This could well change, along with the introduction of new talent scouts to find promising players at cheaper prices.

Berlusconi's complaint, according to Ansa, is that Milan have been spending a lot of money, but not investing it wisely.
