With Juventus in search of a new coach and Allegri available for a new project, this summer is expected to be very rich in coaches transfers. The most sensational could be the return of Massimiliano Allegri to AC Milan. After various rumors, Tuttomercatoweb reports on a recent meting between Ivan Gazidis and Allegri. The AC Milan CEO has inquired about the availability of the Italian to return at the Rossoneri after a 4 year experience between 2010 and 2014.

According to reports, Allegri has not closed the door on a possible return to Milan. Regardless of qualification in Champions League at the end of this season, difficult but still possible.
