According to La Repubblica, Zlatan Ibrahimovic sees Antonio Conte as the ideal replacement for Stefano Pioli, and will play a key role in negotiations with the former Juventus and Inter coach.

Pioli’s contract with AC Milan expires in 2025, but several sources in Italy claim that the Parma-born coach is unlikely to remain in charge of the Rossoneri next season. Conte has emerged as the leading candidate for the job and, according to a recent report in La Repubblica newspaper, the former Inter and Juventus coach is seen as the ideal replacement for Pioli. The new manager Ibrahimovic is said to be a big fan of Conte and is on good terms with the coach. His high salary and demands in the transfer window, as well as his reluctance to see anyone between Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao potentially leave in June, are considered “obstacles” in the negotiations, even though Conte is keen to return to Serie A after leaving Tottenham by mutual agreement last year. According to the report, Thiago Motta, Raffaele Palladino, Roberto De Zerbi and even Jurgen Klopp would be considered by AC Milan should Conte refuse to sign for the Rossoneri.
