Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has decided to replace boss Massimiliano Allegri, claims the Corriere dello Sport.
Allegri, contracted at San Siro until June 2014, will reportedly be shown the door at the end of the season even if the Diavolo succeed in qualifying for the Champions League.
The Corriere alleges that the fans’ support for Allegri during the 4-2 win over Catania did nothing but make the club owner’s hunger for a switch even stronger.
Berlusconi’s desire to appoint a new tactician will subsequently allow Roma to offer the former Cagliari Coach a three-year deal worth €2.5m a campaign.
Possible replacements for Allegri at Milan include former Rossoneri players Clarence Seedorf, Pippo Inzaghi, Mark Van Bommel and Alessandro Costacurta.
Zenit St Petersburg boss Luciano Spalletti is also said to be on their radar, but his €6m a season contract poses a problem.
Allegri won the Scudetto in his first season at Milan and they finished second a year later. They are currently in third with four games left.
