Roma & Atalanta Join Race for Milan Starlet

Atalanta and Roma have taken Milan loanee Daniel Maldini under consideration as a potential target for the summer transfer window. As per Calciomercato, the two Serie A powerhouses could spoil Monza’s plan to turn the forward’s deal permanent.

Despite failing to break into Raffaele Palladino’s starting XI during his loan stint at the Brianteo, Maldini has earned high acclaim from Adriano Galliani. But with Atalanta and Roma in the picture, Atalanta will face an uphill task to land the homegrown Milan playmaker.

Unlike his legendary ancestors, Cesare and Paolo, Daniel’s future may not necessarily be tied to Milan. The potential is undeniable. After all, he’s his father’s son. But something is missing. As the saying goes – the devil is in the details. And those details could push him away from San Siro.

Maldini might not have to travel a long way from home. Bergamo is nearby, and Atalanta would welcome him with open arms. They’ll be ready to fight Roma for the 22-year-old’s signature, especially if Teun Koopmeiners leaves the Gewiss Stadium.

La Dea have done a sterling job turning Charles De Ketelaere into a formidable force following his dreadful spell at Milan. That could be Gian Piero Gasperini’s bargaining chip if he decides to challenge Roma for the versatile youngster.

Marred by injuries, Maldini accumulated just 588 minutes of top-flight action in 2023/24. He made the most out of his sparse game time, scoring four goals. Roma seemingly appreciate his skills and could try to sign him now that Sardar Azmoun is leaving the club.
