Milan are attempting a shock move to steal Azzurri Coach Antonio Conte from his future team Chelsea.
The 46-year-old announced that he would be leaving the international bench at the end of Euro 2016. While he hasn't named his future club, the consensus is that he will join the Premier League's Blues.
According to the Daily Mirror, however, the move is not set in stone and there is a chance that Milan may interfere with the operation, as they believe that Conte is the man to lift them out of their enduring crisis.
Milan are hoping to take advantage of a disagreement between Chelsea and Conte regarding the team's staff.
Conte reportedly intends to take five staff members along with him, which is deemed an excessive number by the Blues.
