AC Milan have a strategy in place for if they manage to convince Massimiliano Allegri to return for a second spell at the club, a report claims.
Despite only being in February, there are a number of rumours currently doing the rounds regarding who could take over from Stefano Pioli as the next head coach of the Rossoneri.
On Wednesday, French outlet L’Equipe claimed that Ralf Rangnick has in fact already signed a deal with the Rossoneri and that there would be a big financial party if the club went back on it, while SportBild journalist Christian Falk believes that the German will join.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport are claiming that denials have arrived from inside the club regarding any kind of agreement with Rangnick, and that Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban want Allegri to return.
Now, the same outlet – as cited by MilanNews – Maldini and Boban hope that Pioli can do such a good job that he deserves to be given another season, but in the meantime they are beginning to think about the possible replacement.
The name at the top of the list is indeed that of Allegri, and the idea of the two directors is to bring a great coach to Milan and to compose a squad which includes a mix of young talents and important players.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s extensions would be followed by another four or five targeted purchases, the report claims. A number of outlets are reporting that Manchester United also want the former Juve boss, so Milan will have to have a serious project ready to convince him.
