Luciano Spalletti is reportedly in advanced talks with Milan, who are hoping to appoint the former Inter boss.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport, Milan are pushing hard to not only agree personal terms with Spalletti but also release him from his Inter contract.
The 60-year-old left Inter at the end of last season following successive top-four finishes in Serie A but is contracted to the club until 2021.
Nonetheless, the newspaper expects the Rossoneri to formalise Marco Giampaolo’s dismissal once they have struck a deal with the ex-Roma man.
It comes despite Giampaolo leading the Diavolo to a 2-1 win against Genoa on Saturday.
