Marco Giampaolo is closing in on becoming the next Torino boss but he must first agree severance with AC Milan, a report claims.
Giampaolo was hired as Milan’s head coach before the start of the 2019-20 season but was sacked after just 111 days in charge following a tough start to the season, and he has been out of work since.
However, multiple outlets are now reporting that he is the man most likely to become the new manager of Torino, who are searching for a head coach to replace Moreno Longo.
According to MilanNews, contacts between Torino and Giampaolo are continuing with the intention of the ex-Sampdoria boss taking the job.
However, the Bellinzona native still under contract with Milan, and once an agreement with the Granata has been found, Giampaolo may require a severance pay for the termination of his contract with the Rossoneri.
It is a situation reminiscent of the one surrounding Luciano Spalletti, who nearly join Milan as Giampaolo’s replacement but couldn’t agree severance with Inter, so he is still out of a job too.
