Report: Turkish giants want Giampaolo as next manager – why it is good news for Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

Fenerbahce have set their sights on Marco Giampaolo to become the club’s next manager, according to the latest reports from Turkey.

Giampaolo was hired by the Rossoneri before the start of the current campaign following Gennaro Gattuso’s departure, but his adventure ended after just seven games and 111 days in charge.

He was replaced by Stefano Pioli who now faces his own uncertain future, however the former Sampdoria boss is still under contract with Milan until 3 June 2021 having not found work elsewhere, despite links with Udinese.

Giampaolo’s salary is €2million net per season, and Milan’s hope is that the 52-year-old can find accommodation at a new club to save about €4m.

The coronavirus emergency has obviously frozen all types of negotiations and there is room for other clubs to join the race, and from Turkey comes news that the coach has ended up in the sights of Fenerbahce .

According to Fanatik, the president of the Istanbul club – Ali Koç’s – is keen on bringing the Italian to the Super Lig.
