AC Milan will open talks with Roberto De Zerbi in the next few days following his decision to leave Brighton, changing plans in the Lombard capital.

The 44-year-old Italian coach surprised Seagulls fans last week when he publicly confirmed his departure from the club at the end of this Premier League season, having failed to find common ground with owner Tony Bloom before the summer transfer window. AC Milan have long been looking for a new head coach to replace Stefano Pioli, and had briefly considered De Zerbi, but were put off by his €13 million release clause. His departure from Brighton by mutual agreement, however, changes things, prompting the Rossoneri to alter their plans. La Gazzetta dello Sport details how AC Milan welcomed the news of De Zerbi’s departure from Brighton and will be contacting the coach in the next few days to begin discussing a possible summer move. For the moment, Paulo Fonseca is still top of the Rossoneri’s wish list, but this could change quickly depending on how talks with the Italian tactician go.
