Although discussions have yet to commence, Milan is contemplating extending coach Stefano Pioli’s contract this summer amidst growing uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s suitability.

Earlier in the season, Pioli appeared poised to depart the Rossoneri as their form dipped and they stumbled in the Champions League, leaving fans exasperated leading up to the holiday break. Various alternatives, including Conte, Thiago Motta, and Roberto De Zerbi, were mooted.

However, Milan has experienced a resurgence under Pioli in the latter half of the season, emerging as one of the league’s most formidable teams and securing a comfortable second place in the table. Consequently, the club is now looking ahead to the summer transfer window.

Pioli’s Future According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Milan has yet to make a final decision regarding Pioli’s future but is considering offering him a new contract. Owner Gerry Cardinale will assess all analyses and advice at the season’s end before determining the best course of action.

While Milan continues to monitor Thiago Motta’s situation at Bologna, reports suggest that the coach has reached a preliminary agreement with Juventus for the summer. Conte’s prospects, on the other hand, are diminishing as concerns mount over his transfer aspirations and long-term planning at the club.
