Milan identify Conte alternative

Antonio Conte continues to be the main target of AC Milan for the summer but if a deal does not materialize the Rossoneri have already identified his alternative.

Il Corriere dello Sport reports that Milan continue to cultivate the Antonio Conte dream. Contacts with Chelsea coach’s entourage began when Vincenzo Montella was still at charge and have not stop. Carlo Ancelotti (very difficult) and Roberto Mancini are considered as important alternatives. The second was at Inter with Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli, who could try to bring him in the Rossoneri. An idea that is not approved by the fans.

According to CorSport if Milan fail to reach a deal with Conte the club has already identified Gian Piero Gasperini as the perfect candidate. The technician of Atalanta is doing great things in Bergamo, enhancing practically all of his players and leading the team towards important goals. If the difficulties to land a top name persist, he will be considered as a very valid alternative. Gattuso aside.

Without Champions League and with UEFA restrictions on the way because of the Settlement Agreement, it seems improbable for a high profile like Conte to accept Milan. Maybe the club will try anyway, but it’s a complicated track. On the other had, Gian Piero Gasperini seems well within reach and an ideal figure to improve AC Milan.
