According to the latest from La Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Nicolo Schira, Milan have returned to the idea of bringing in Sartori for next season.

In addition to that, Schira claims that Atalanta are already beginning to think about his replacement in the form of Stefano Capozucca, who worked with their head coach Gian Piero Gasperini at Genoa.
