According to a report from Corriere dello Sport (via Milan News), Julen Lopetegui, a Spanish coach, is the leading candidate to replace Stefano Pioli at AC Milan in the event of his dismissal. Lopetegui is reportedly awaiting the opportunity to take over at Milan.

As Pioli faces a critical juncture in his tenure, with pivotal fixtures including the Europa League quarter-final against AS Roma and the Derby della Madonnina against Inter Milan, Lopetegui remains poised in the background. Should Milan suffer elimination from the Europa League followed by Inter clinching the Serie A title, Pioli’s future with the club appears uncertain.

The report indicates that Geoffrey Moncada has held two meetings with Lopetegui, potentially signaling a forthcoming two-year contract offer should Milan opt to part ways with Pioli prematurely.

With coaching experience at prominent clubs like Real Madrid, Sevilla, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and the Spanish national team, Lopetegui is viewed as a dependable option for Milan if a swift replacement is required.

Pioli’s remaining tenure with the club could hinge on the outcomes of these critical upcoming matches, offering him limited opportunities to secure a prolonged stay at Milan.
