Milan shift focus away from Julen Lopetegui


Milan appear to be shifting their focus away from the potential signing of Julen Lopetegui as they begin their search for a new manager for the upcoming season. Following Milan’s Europa League elimination at the hands of Roma, the future of Stefano Pioli at the Rossoneri seems uncertain.

Despite initial interest in Lopetegui, recent developments suggest a change in direction for the club. While Milan had reportedly made contact with the Spanish manager, dubbed ‘Nopetegui’ by protesting fans on social media, Sky Italia now indicate that the Rossoneri are inclined to step back from pursuing Lopetegui’s signature. The possibility of hiring him now appears to have diminished.

As Milan explore alternative options, several names have emerged in the managerial saga. Leading contenders include Paulo Fonseca and Brighton boss Roberto de Zerbi, although the club has yet to make any formal contact with them. Additionally, Mark van Bommel and Thiago Motta have been mentioned as potential candidates, with Motta potentially joining Juventus in the summer.
