Massimiliano Allegri has given his approval regarding a return to AC Milan, a report claims, but only if two key conditions are met.
Despite the general consensus being that the Rossoneri’s performances have hugely improved under Stefano Pioli in comparison to Marco Giampaolo’s disastrous 111-day reign, speculation is still rife regarding his future.
The majority of media outlets are claiming he will be replaced at the end of the season if he doesn’t achieve Champions League qualification, and with the team 10 points off the top four the club’s hierarchy have begun to assess his replacement.
According to a report from Liberoquotidiano.it, CEO Ivan Gazidis would like to focus on Ralf Rangnick, a man who Paolo Maldini does not endorse for the role. There are even rumours about a sort of pre-agreement already signed, with a penalty if Milan revoke it.
The report adds that Allegri has given his availability to return to the Milan bench but under certain conditions. The first is that there must be three or four major signings of experience made during the summer window, in addition to keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic for another year.
The second concerns his salary: Allegri is in fact asking for at least €10million net per season, which is more than double what Rangnick would want. There are knots to untie, it seems.
