The sporting director position for Newcastle is now a stumbling block. "Magpies" cannot agree with Manchester United on the departure of current specialist Dan Ashworth, but are ready for him to leave the club and began to look for his replacement.

And such an option Newcastle, as The I News believes, the collective has found in Italy. "Magpies" want to invite to the post of sports director of the former technical director of Milan and a real legend of "rossoneri" Paolo Maldini.

The 55-year-old has been on sabbatical since leaving his position at the San Siro in the summer of 2023, and it was during his five-year stint that he established himself as a good worker, helping the club regain the Scudetto with his transfer advice.

The Magpies plan to employ Maldini at their club in the summer, but former Roma employee Thiago Pinto is also being considered.
