Arseblog News understands that Ivan Gazidis has agreed leave Arsenal to join AC Milan.
The 54 year old has been at the club since 2009, and in the last 12 months has overseen major developments such as the appointment of Unai Emery as Arsene Wenger’s replacement, as well as Raul Sanllehi and Sven Mislintat to head up the footballing executive committee.
Talks between all parties have been ongoing for some time, with a lack of clarity frustrating for some, but it now seems as if the deal has been finalised.
Late last week, Milan president Paolo Scaroni said, “Negotiations with Gazidis are ongoing. The process of selecting a CEO must be done well and calmly.”
It’s likely that Gazidis’ replacement at board level will be more closely aligned with soon-to-be 100% owners KSE, with Josh Kroenke strongly tipped to take a more active role in the running of Arsenal.
There could be further changes at board level too, as some of the old guard make way for the new American style operation we’re about to get.
More on this when we get it.
