Christophe Galtier, Antonio Conte, Roberto De Zerbi, Maurizio Sarri… In recent days, the avenues to replace Stefano Pioli on the AC Milan bench have multiplied. Criticized for his results and the game proposed, the 58-year-old Italian technician should, in fact, not continue the adventure with the Rossoneri. Yes, but here it is, if Julen Lopetegui, passed by Wolverhampton, Sevilla or even Real Madrid, was recently announced as the favorite to arrive in Lombardy, the supporters of the Milanese club quickly signaled their dissatisfaction by launching a “NOPEtegui” on the networks social and by creating, moreover, a petition to block his arrival.

Faced with this resistance, the Milanese management therefore seems to have changed its tune and according to the latest information from Sky Italia, three profiles are now targeted. A reduced cast including Sergio Conceiçao (49 years old). The current coach of FC Porto, recently extended, could thus settle down at Milan. According to Italian media, his representative Jorge Mendes is also trying to ensure that the operation takes place. Contacts have even already been established with the former Lazio, Parma and Inter player.

With 3 league titles, 3 national cups and 3 Supercups with the Dragões, Sergio Conceiçao – who recently saw the arrival of André Villas-Boas as president – could also cut his contract currently running until June 2028, thanks to a bilateral clause. Among the other potential candidates, Ruben Amorim, once announced by Liverpool to succeed Jürgen Klopp, is also part of this shortlist. Although no contact has yet been made with the 39-year-old Portuguese, Milan’s upper echelons currently consider him one of the best technicians at international level.

Finally, Lombard leaders remain attentive to the situation of Paulo Fonseca, today on the LOSC bench and also tracked by Olympique de Marseille. Compared to Stefano Pioli in his temperament and his style of play, the current architect of the Dogues has a good rating in Milan. A fine connoisseur of the Italian championship since his experience at AS Roma, the 51-year-old coach could therefore make his comeback in Serie A. One thing is certain, looking at the names put forward, the AC Milan board seems more never determined to give a Portuguese touch to the future face of the club…
