A journalist has made the bold claim that Antonio Conte and AC Milan have agreed terms and that he will become the next head coach of the club.
TeleLombardia (via FootballItalia) are reporting that Conte has accepted the terms offered by Milan and that he will take over when Stefano Pioli leaves the club, which is likely to be at the end of the season.
It was more specifically the journalist Luca Momblano who made the claim that Conte has agreed to the proposal from RedBird Capital, and while he has mixed reliability he is known for breaking news such as Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus.
Conte turned down an offer from Napoli in October because he wanted to take time off following his departure from Spurs in March 2023, not long after Milan beat them in the Champions League.
The Italian has of course coached Milan’s two main rivals Juventus and Inter already, but if Momblano is to be believed then he will complete the trio by taking over the Rossoneri.
At this point, we must state that the information we have is that Conte is not a candidate that the Milan management are considering due to various factors, including his demanding nature and his salary.
