AC Milan would love to prise Antonio Conte away from Chelsea this season, it has been revealed.

Xavier Jacobelli, the director of Corriere dello Sport, says Milan would be happy to replace Vincenzo Montella with Conte, however their plans are a likely non-starter.

He told TMW: “Everyone knows that AC Milan is dreaming of Antonio Conte, but currently he is under contract with Chelsea.

“There are currently two alternatives: one is Paulo Sousa and the other is Gennaro Gattuso, coach of the juniors. I think the leaders are mostly looking for a coach with a big personality.”
