Maldini played out his entire time with Milan.
âJuventus wanted me, while Gianluca Vialli called me to Chelsea in 1996, but I preferred to stay with Milan to recover from a disastrous year. It was the right choice. Arsenal made an economic offer and there was also a request from Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
âThe truth is that most of these offers coincided with terrible seasons for Milan. It probably wouldâve been easier to accept, but those of us in the foundations of the team took our responsibility and preferred to stay so we could turn the situation around.â
