Inter are open to resolving the contract situation with Luciano Spalletti who is closing in on joining Milan as head coach, a report claims.
A number of different outlets are reporting that Marco Giampaolo is set to be sacked by the Rossoneri after three wins and four defeats in his first seven games.
Our correspondent Vito Angele confirmed that the decision has been made to dismiss the former Sampdoria boss, while he also revealed that Spalletti is the first choice to take over.
Then, reports from a number of reliable sources emerged confirming that the former Inter boss has agreed to take over at Milan on a three-year deal.
All that remains is for severance to be sorted with the Nerazzurri, and according to il Corriere della Sera their director Beppe Marotta has already given him the green light.
Spalletti will reportedly be paid a one year salary up front and then his contract will be terminated with immediate effect, allowing him to join Milan.
TMW (via MilanNews) adds that Spalletti is asking for a two-year deal with option on the third year at €4million.
Elliott Management are ready to give the go-ahead despite assuming on Monday morning that a caretaker would be the best solution.
