CM: Another revolution on the cards for Milan – Atalanta, ex-Chelsea directors eyed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are gearing up for another managerial revolution this summer which could see a number of new figures hired, a report claims.

Speculation is rife in the media at present suggesting that the Rossoneri could make plenty of changes in key positions, with CEO Ivan Gazidis leading the overhaul.

Stefano Pioli looks set to depart as head coach unless he somehow achieves a top four finish and/or wins the Coppa Italia, while there are also doubts about the likes of Paolo Maldini, Zvonomir Boban and Ricky Massara.

On the latter, Calciomercato.com are reporting that ‘Milan, in all probability, will also change a lot in managerial positions’. The sporting director role is one where Elliott Management are already making moves, as Atalanta’s Giovanni Sartori ex-Chelsea man Michael Emenalo are being targeted.

La Repubblica actually claimed on Sunday that Gazidis met with Emenalo – also formerly a director at Monaco – during the week at Casa Milan, likely to discuss a possible role.

Meanwhile, TMW first claimed back in December that Milan could look at hiring Sartori for next season. He played for Milan in the late 1970s and is one of the most respected in Italian football in his role, having been credited with attracting names names such as Papu Gomez, Luis Muriel, Duvan Zapata, Marten de Roon and more.
