According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan coach Stefano Pioli is in no rush to sign a contract extension with the Rossoneri and snubbed Tottenham’s interest earlier this summer.
The 55-year-old is the only coach among those in charge of Serie A top clubs who sees his contract expire at the end of the season.
Milan have an option to extend his stay at the club until 2023, so talks regarding a possible new deal for the former Fiorentina and Lazio coach have not begun.
However, with a €2m-a-year salary, Pioli is also the worst paid coach among the top ones.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is the better paid Serie A coach this season, having signed an €8m-a-year deal with the Bianconeri.
The Tuscan tactician is followed by José Mourinho (€7m-a-year), Maurizio Sarri and Simone Inzaghi (circa €4m-a-year each) and Luciano Spalletti (€3m-a-year).
However, he is in no rush to sign a contract extension with the Rossoneri and his entourage is not pushing to open talks with the Serie A giants.
Pioli is only focused on the pre-season and has always wanted to stay at Milan, so much so, he rejected an approach from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer. Spurs had entered talks with Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso, before hiring Nuno Espirito Santo.
