Zdenek Zeman is seen as ready to return to management with Bologna, with only certain details holding up a deal.
The 67-year-old, who has been out of work since being sacked by Roma last season, reportedly met with Rossoblu President Albano Guaraldi earlier this week to discuss potentially coming in from the summer.
The Coach is now reported by the Corriere dello Sport as in agreement with Guaraldi over a potential deal and that whilst financial details are yet to be agreed, the President is believed willing to satisfy the technical requests Zeman puts to him.
However, one particular aspect that is holding up any confirmation is the club’s corporate issue with Massimo Zanetti, who has opened up the possibility to returning to the club as President, to appease fans unhappy with Guaraldi’s stewardship.
