Maurizio Pistocchi has suggested that Milan have secured the services of Unai Emery of Sevilla but that may depend on Carlo Ancelotti’s answer.
Uncertainly rules at Milan these days but the thing that’s clear is that Filippo Inzaghi will not be kept as the coach of Milan.
The number one targets seems to be Carlo Ancelotti, who is also expected to leave Real Madrid but according to SportMediaset pundit Maurizio Pistocchi, Milan have already put their hands on Unai Emery of Sevilla.
Pistocchi tweeted on Sunday: “According to my sources – the same ones who gave me Seedorf to Milan (six months early) and Mancini to Inter – Unai Emery has signed with Milan.” He later spoke to Premium, stating that “Ancelotti has been the idea in recent days. But Milan have already safeguarded themselves.
“They’ve secured Unai Emery, a young coach who’s won and knows what it means to win. He won the Europa League with Sevilla last year and he’s in the final again this year. The agreement with the coach is already there. Unless Ancelotti changes mind, this is the hottest name.”
Secondo le mie fonti-le stesse che mi hanno dato Seedorf al Milan(6 mesi prima) e Mancini all'Inter-Unay Emery avrebbe firmato con il Milan

Adriano Galliani is expected to fly out to Madrid tomorrow to talk with Carlo Ancelotti but there are now speculations that he might be heading to Seville instead to talk about Emery. It will of course be clearer on Monday as Uncle Fester will catch a flight to Spain from the Linate airport at about 13:00.
Sky Italia meanwhile reports some of the names that are in Milan’s notebook heading towards the season: Mario Mandzukic and Jackson Martinez are targets for the attack while Geoffrey Kondogbia, Ilkay Gundogan (Milan have reportedly contacted his father), Granit Xhaka, Daniele Baselli and Juraj Kucka are targets for the midfield (in addition to Andrea Bertolacci and Jose Mauri).
The next few weeks will be crucial to know what Milan the fans should expect to see next season.
