Serie A’s Manager Madness

There could be some significant changes in Serie A over the next few days, with several clubs reportedly close to appointing new managers.

Juventus are edging closer to naming Maurizio Sarri as their new boss, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia).

The report indicates that Sarri, who last week won the Europa League, his first trophy as a manager, will say goodbye to Chelsea on Monday before heading to Juventus to replace Massimiliano Allegri.

According to Tuttosport, Sarri wants to sign Kalidou Koulibaly from his former club Napoli once he takes over at Juventus.

AC Milan are also looking to bring in a new manager following the departure of Gennaro Gattuso.

Milan are aiming to appoint club legend Paolo Maldini as their technical director, while Marco Giampaolo, the Sampdoria boss, could become their new manager, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Another Italian side looking for a new boss are Roma, who are targeting Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca, as reported by Corriere dello Sport.

If he was appointed then Fonseca would replace Claudio Ranieri, who left the club at the end of the season.
