AC Milan legend Maldini ponders comeback with New York Red Bull

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini is being linked with a shock PLAYING move to New York Red Bull.

Maldini hung up the boots at the end of last season and turned down a coaching switch to Chelsea.

Milan-based Sportmediaset says Maldini is now considering coming out of retirement to join New York and MLS. The defender has kept fit since he stopped playing and could arrive as an alternative to prime NYRB target Thierry Henry, the Barcelona striker.
