Porto boss Sergio Conceição to discuss future amidst Milan links


The future of Porto manager Sergio Conceição hangs in the balance as reports emerge of a potential move to Serie A giants Milan. Conceição, a highly-regarded figure in Portuguese football, has garnered interest from Milan, prompting discussions about his next career move.

According to recent reports, Milan have been in contact with Conceição’s agent, Jorge Mendes, indicating a genuine interest in securing his services. The allure of managing a prestigious club like Milan has reportedly tempted Conceição, who is open to the idea of a new challenge.

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Bianchin has suggested that this week could prove pivotal in Milan’s pursuit of a new manager. While both Conceição and Paulo Fonseca are prominent candidates, it is the Porto boss who currently captures Milan’s imagination the most.

Conceição himself is closely monitoring the situation at Milan, demonstrating a keen interest in the potential opportunity. Despite his commitments, he made a trip to Zurich recently to watch his son Rodrigo play, underlining his dedication to family amidst the professional uncertainties.

However, Conceição’s plans to meet with André Villas Boas, Porto’s newly appointed president, have been postponed due to his trip. Nonetheless, discussions about his future are imminent, especially considering his contract extension until 2028, inked under the previous president, Jorge Nuno de Lima.

The arrival of Villas Boas has prompted Conceição to explore alternative options, with Milan emerging as an attractive prospect. It is anticipated that he will engage in conversations with the new president about the possibility of securing a move to Milan and potentially negotiating his departure from Porto to facilitate the transition.
