It's widely accepted that Daniel Maldini is bursting with potential and excitement. Despite Milan fans eagerly waiting to see more of the young gun, it has become apparent that he is not quite ready for first team action in the eyes of Team Manager Stefano Pioli. However, according to teammate Rafael Leao, Maldini is set to fly in 2021.


In an interview with the social media group 433, Leao stated that the young Maldini was the most talented player in the Milan squad. He went on to state that Maldini is the most likely Milan player to surprise fans in 2021, hoping that he is given the opportunity to display his talent in the new year.


With Leao's stardom rising with each game that passes, will Maldini be the next Milan youngster to start turning heads?
