D-day nears for Allegri as decision on his future is postponed again.
Former Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard is the latest name to be linked to the managerial post at AC Milan, according to Corriere dello Sport.
There is great uncertainty over current boss Massimiliano Allegri’s future at the club, and despite successfully clinching Champions League qualification this season, many expect him to leave.
Allegri, owner Silvio Berlusconi and vice-president Adriano Galliani were expected to meet on Thursday to make a decision over the tactician’s future, but the meeting has again been postponed and scheduled for Sunday.
Roma are reportedly interested in hiring Allegri to fill their managerial role this summer, and it appears it may be a question of when, not if, he arrives.
Meanwhile, former Rossonero Clarence Seedorf has been strongly linked with a return to the club to replace Allegri.
However, those rumours were rebuffed by the Milan fans who called for a more experienced coach to take charge should there be a change this summer.
As a result, Corriere dello Sport, as reported by football-italia.net, now believe that Rijkaard is in contention and may well be seen as a more able replacement.
The Dutchman spent five years of his playing career at the club in arguably its most successful era under Arrigo Sacchi, while he has had managerial experiences with differing results.
Undoubtedly his spell at Barcelona would suggest that he has what it takes to be successful, however disappointing stints at Galatasaray and the Saudi Arabian national team have somewhat dampened his hopes of securing another big job.
However, it appears as though Milan may be interested in bringing him back to the club should they decide to part company with Allegri.
