MN: Fonseca could bring two Lille talents to Milan if he joins – the details

By Ben Dixon -

In recent weeks, Paulo Fonseca’s name has become increasingly attached to the soon-to-be-vacant AC Milan head coach role, and a report has suggested that if he is appointed, he could look to bring some of his current players to San Siro. 

Discussions are ongoing at Milanello regarding who will be the next head coach of the club. However, nothing is concrete, and there is not a clear front-runner. Instead, reports suggest that two candidates have moved clear of the competition.

One of those is Sergio Conceicao, whose stocks have progressively increased in favour, and now he finds himself in a position where there is a clear chance that he is the next Rossoneri head coach. Especially after reports suggesting he will leave Porto continue to increase.

Alternatively, there is Fonseca, who could guide Lille to Champions League football this weekend and has several teams chasing his signature.

This morning, Milan News suggested that Fonseca is the man leading the line for Milan, and he will make a decision this weekend after his season is over. The report suggests that if he does become the Rossoneri’s next manager, he will look to bring two talents with him.

Firstly, Tiago Santos, the Portuguese right-back could be the perfect heir to Davide Calabria, and at 23-years-old he has plenty of room for progression. Additionally, there is Jonathan David, who the Rossoneri have been consistently interested in, and Fonseca’s arrival could be the catalyst for him finally arriving.

  1. Just came back here almost 1 year after I quit watching Milan to see if something changed.

    So Milan is even more of a banter club than before.

  2. Don Vito de Palma is Italian, he works in ESPN, his kids are coaches in Calcio or Journalist.

    He said to have a insider who works directly with Milan’s management. He mentions 3 guys.

    Maybe Maldini’s Milan was with Kloop at the center, with 433 which is essentially what Milan has been acquiring wingers.

    He said Kloop is being tempted ever since we faced him in CL. Klopp knew his time at Liverpool was doomed and Milan is the clearest choice.

    The only problem is he wants a sabbatical, is an honor thing.

    So we either keep Pioli ala Barça which is my choice, or we sign someone right now and move from the idea of signing Klopp.

    Vito talked in a podcast recently, he still thinks Pioli is out and Klopp is being tempted to take the team right now…

    Cardinale can take a huge W if Klopp and good players arrive…

    1. Klopp already said yes. We only need to respect his decision and wait one season. Pioli and Abate should work together, or sign Mou, he could be the perfect interim…
