Milan FC is reportedly hoping to secure Antonio Conte as their next manager, following a potential departure of current manager, Stefano Pioli. Conte, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur, is said to be the Italian club’s top choice, despite talk of Roberto De Zerbi being the dream candidate. However, the transaction might currently be facing some undesirable slowdowns.
Three main issues have emerged: Conte’s signing fee, transfer demands he might place for new players, and the implementation of a 3-5-2 formation system, which Conte has insisted on. These complications might potentially obstruct the smooth transition of the managerial role from Pioli to Conte.
This information has been gathered from Italian sports news sources, which have not provided any direct quotes on the matter. The BBC will continue to monitor this developing story and provide updates as more details emerge.
