Two-horse race between Montella and Giampaolo for AC Milan bench

By Isak Möller -

The new season will officially start in 10 days for AC Milan, but the rossoneri still don’t have a manager for their first team. Of course, the fact that the negotiation between the Lombard club and the Chinese investors is still on stand-by complicates everything, however, Milan must hurry up.

Brocchi’s decision to step aside is just the last episode of a long saga: after the rumors regarding Unai Emery, Manuel Pellegrini, Ronald De Boer and Fabio Capello, now the only credible candidates for the rossoneri’s bench are Marcello Lippi, Marco Giampaolo and Vincenzo Montella.

The 43-year-old was a target for the Lombard club when he was coaching Fiorentina, now, to obtain him, Milan will have to pay his release clause to Sampdoria. Montella’s agent has already talked with the rossoneri’s CEO Adriano Galliani, and also the blucerchiati are ready to let him go, but not for free.
