According to a report, former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has emerged as the first choice replacement for Gennaro Gattuso at Milan.
The former Italy boss has been repeatedly linked with the role at San Siro, even before Gattuso was promoted from youth team Coach to the top job in place of sacked Vincenzo Montella.
However, there are some major issues with bringing Conte back to the Peninsula, as La Gazzetta dello Sport warns his legal battle with Chelsea for unfair dismissal is dragging on.
Conte left the West London club on bad terms as Roman Abramovich sacked him in favour of compatriot Maurizio Sarri, and the pair are still clashing over the terms of his potential £9million severance package.
It’s said that the Milan hierarchy do not have full confidence in Gattuso’s powers, despite handing him a contract until 2021 just four months ago.
But despite guiding Milan to a Europa League finish, Gattuso may not get the chance to build on his potential.
