Luciano Spalletti is becoming the new favourite to take the Milan job next season, according to reports, as Ralf Rangnick is getting cold feet.
The Rossoneri have improved considerably under Stefano Pioli, who replaced Marco Giampaolo just a couple of months after Gennaro Gattuso walked away, but the club is already looking to the future.
Multiple sources in Germany and Italy suggest Rangnick is the first choice, with ex-Milan director Zvonimir Boban confirming there was contact, but a deal seems a long way off.
According to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, the next in line is Spalletti, who is fast becoming the new favourite for the Rossoneri role.
It would be a return to San Siro, but on the other side, as he was sacked by Inter after two seasons.
Spalletti is considered a specialist in getting his teams qualified for the Champions League at Zenit St Petersburg, Roma and Inter.
