Milan make enquiries about Marcelo Gallardo


Milan are exploring new avenues for their managerial position, with Marcelo Gallardo emerging as a potential candidate, according to recent reports. Gallardo, the current coach of Al Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League, has captured the attention of the Milan hierarchy as they contemplate their options for the managerial role.

Sky Sport Italia report that Gallardo is on the brink of parting ways with his current club in Saudi Arabia, with the resolution of his contract expected imminently.

Amidst considerations of other non-Italian  profiles like Sergio Conceicao and Paulo Fonseca, Milan have also conducted an inquiry into Gallardo’s availability. The Argentine could potentially be the surprise final choice if all parties within the Milan organization align on his profile.

A potential hurdle in securing Gallardo’s services could have been his reportedly exorbitant salary at Al Ittihad, which is approximately €22 million net. However, should Gallardo resolve his contract with a severance package, he would then be free to negotiate with a new club, particularly if Milan decides to pursue him over other candidates still in contention.
