You have to hand it to Ivan Gazidis, he certainly doesn’t lack grand plans and his latest is to bring Pep Guardiola and Marc Overmars to AC Milan.

Since leaving Arsenal last year, Ivan Gazidis’s replacement Raul Sanllehi has shown us all just what a useless pile of crap Ivan Gazidis really was.

He’s already annoying people in Milan, too, with fans reportedly unhappy at the firing of manager Marco Giampaolo after only seven games. Now he thinks he can bring Pep Guardiola to the club along with Marc Overmars.

Guardiola is out of contract with City in 2021 while Overmars is contracted with Ajax until 2024 and has shown no signs of wanting to leave.

At City, Guardiola currently earns £15m-a-season and the club were reportedly willing to up that to £20m if he signed a new five-year deal.

That means he’s on approximately £5.5m a year more than Milan’s highest earner, Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Good luck, Ivan…
