The Milan situation will drag on until Monday or Tuesday, as tonight’s meeting with Massimiliano Allegri failed to reach a conclusion.
The Coach is only prepared to stay at the club if they offer an extension on his contract, which expires in June 2014.
President Silvio Berlusconi repeatedly postponed a crunch meeting, so Allegri had dinner with Vice-President Adriano Galliani at Il Consolare restaurant instead.
Reports emerging from that discussion suggest any decision will be delayed until Monday or Tuesday, when Allegri will finally get his face-to-face encounter with Berlusconi.
The patron is eager to bring in fresh blood and Clarence Seedorf has been tipped for the role next season.
Meanwhile, Allegri is keeping Roma waiting, as they want a response to their three-year contract proposal.
Roma director Walter Sabatini is also in Milan this evening and with the latest news on Allegri is starting to look elsewhere for a new manager.
