Multiple sources in Italy claim ex-Roma coach Paulo Fonseca has become Milan‘s primary option to replace Stefano Pioli next season and according to DAZN, the Serie A giants are ready to offer the Portuguese a two-year deal.

Several Italian sources claim Lille boss Fonseca has become the leading candidate for the Milan job in 2024-25.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Rossoneri see the former Roma tactician as the ideal replacement for Pioli next season.

The Italian broadcasters reported that Milan directors think Fonseca would give the project ‘continuity’ by using the same tactical system as Pioli. Furthermore, the 51-year-old has a ‘balanced’ personality on and off the pitch, which suits Milan’s style.

Fonseca becomes leading candidate for Milan job

Fonseca’s contract with Lille runs out next month, but representatives of the Ligue 1 giants are expected to meet him next week to discuss his future at the club.

Fonseca has also attracted interest from Marseille, but he denied an agreement with Lille’s rivals last week.

DAZN reporter Orazio Accomando confirms on X, formerly Twitter, that Milan are increasingly convinced about hiring Fonseca after a recent contact with the Portuguese.

The reporter claims Milan are ready to offer the ex-Roma coach a two-year deal.

  1. why sack Pioli if you want to bring Fonseca? that’s ridiculous. the only candidates I would get on the Milan bench is either De Zerbi or Conte. otherwise stick with Pioli and supply him with strong team. Milan needs an Italian coach not foreigner.

  2. Like i had said before, if this was true then they would have offered me a contract as well. Crap news.
