Milan could now go for Stefano Pioli or a foreign Coach as Luciano Spalletti is allegedly asking Inter for too much compensation.
However, the stumbling block has been a severance package with Inter, given he is under contract with them until 2021.
It was first thought he would accept just six months’ worth of pay to walk away from the Nerazzurri, yet Sky Sport Italia and ANSA are now reporting the 60-year-old wants a full year’s salary.
That seems unlikely at this stage, so the two sources claim the Diavolo are now looking to Pioli or a foreign Coach.
Pioli previously coached Inter during the 2016-17 campaign and had been tipped to take over at Genoa.
As for the profile of the foreign tactician, it could be former Roma boss Rudi Garcia, although he is believed to be closer to Monaco.
MilanNews, meanwhile, has put forward the name of Marcelino, who recently left Valencia after two Champions League finishes and a Copa del Rey triumph.
