Milan and Roma Currently Top Suitors for Thiago Motta

Thiago Motta is inevitably drawing the attention of major clubs considering Bologna’s great success and his very modern style. Milan and Roma will likely need a new coach at the end of the season and are leading the race to snap him up, Calciomercato informs.

Despite his offensive-minded style, the improvements on the other end have fueled their run this season. The Felsinei have kept 11 clean sheets at home since he took over, on par with Juventus, Opta informs (via Goal).

Bologna have been trying to agree to a new contract with Thiago Motta to protect themselves. They haven’t managed so far. Roma have decided to wait it out to decide the future of José Mourinho. Instead, Stefano Pioli is seriously wobbling considering their ongoing protracted slump. He was confirmed after a meeting with Gerry Cardinale but not necessarily for the long haul, Sky relays.

Juventus have also been mildly attached to the Rossoblù gaffer as they might not keep Massimiliano Allegri past this campaign.

Our Take on Thiago Motta

A renewal might not matter that much at this point. If a top team comes calling, and any that has an opening should, it’d only give the Felsinei the power to ask for something in return and wouldn’t really stop him from bolting. He’s reasonably versatile and his schemes would fit most sides. He just needs a young squad that fully follows him and buys into his methods and some patience to gel with the players and fine-tune his tactics.
