According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan have decided not to appoint Julen Lopetegui as their next coach, following protests from fans, so they are considering Roberto De Zerbi and have made contact with five other candidates.

Spanish coach Lopetegui will not be AC Milan’s coach in 2024-25, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport. The report claims that the Rossoneri have decided to abandon the former Real Madrid boss mainly due to fan protests, so they are now considering different targets to replace Stefano Pioli next season. A second report from the pink paper claims that Rossoneri directors have already spoken to five candidates plus Lopetegui. These are Paulo Fonseca, Julian Nagelsmann, who has decided to stay with Germany beyond the summer and is therefore no longer available, Christophe Galtier, Marcelo Gallardo and Domenico Tedesco. However, they are not the only candidates for the job. According to the report, the Rossoneri are also considering Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi, a product of their academy as a footballer, and their former midfielder Mark Van Bommel, a close friend of RedBird advisor Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who won a Serie A title as a footballer at San Siro.
