Max Allegri rejected a €10million-a-year offer to return to AC Milan as manager, according to one journalist.
The Rossoneri are set for a huge overhaul off the field this summer, with former Roma man Frederic Massara expected to replace Leonardo as sporting director.
Meanwhile, current Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo appears to be the man who will succeed Gennaro Gattuso head coach, with Rino having left not long after Milan’s win over SPAL to end the season.
Now, journalist Maurizio Pistocchi has stated via Twitter that an approach was indeed made to bring Allegri back to the San Siro for a second stint after it was announced the Italian tactician would be leaving Juventus.
He claims that Milan offered a bumped €10million-a-year deal to try and tempt Allegri – who won the club’s last Scudetto back in 2010-11 – to coach the Diavolo once again.
However the answer was a resounding no, and it is now a mystery as to where Allegri will coach next season, if at all.
