Milan consider Conte

It’s reported that Elliott Management are considering a change on the Milan bench, with Antonio Conte replacing Gennaro Gattuso.

The U.S hedge fund has taken over the running of the club after Yonghong Li failed to pay his debts, and are already making changes.

A new President is expected to be appointed on July 21, likely Paolo Scaroni, the former CEO of Italian energy company Eni.

Ivan Gazidis is being considered to replace CEO Marco Fassone, while Leonardo could come in as a general manager working above sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli, or a new man in the role.

Now SportMediaset is reporting that there could also be a change on the bench, with Conte replacing Gattuso.

The former Italy CT is a free agent after being sacked by Chelsea, and has already won three Scudetti at Juventus.

Gattuso, meanwhile, is closely linked to Mirabelli and despite a decent job last season has little coaching pedigree.

Conte’s arrival could also facilitate a move for Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, as he strongly pushed Juventus to sign the Spaniard before his departure, and was a key figure in bringing the striker to Stamford Bridge.
