Milan Await Key Meeting Between Conceiçao and Porto

Sergio Conceiçao has jumped at the top of the Milan wish list for their bench opening after they moved on from Julen Lopetegui, but they need him to get out of his Porto contract. The gaffer will soon have a pivotal meeting with new club president André Vilas Boas, La Gazzetta dello Sport informed.

The manager penned an extension until 2028 a few days ago. However, chairman Pinto da Costa was defeated in the ensuing election, and a clause allows him to rescind his deal if there is a change at the top.

Conceiçao would reportedly be very keen on joining Milan if he left Porto. At this stage, the Rossoneri can only wait and see whether he’ll indeed become available. He’d be the most accomplished option linked to them so far other than Antonio Conte, whom their brass isn’t really considering due to his lofty salary demands.

At this stage, Lille boss Paulo Fonseca is the primary fallback. They have a tight relationship with Lille, which have relayed rave reviews about their coach. They have had contacts with Roberto Martinez, Mark van Bommel, and Maurizio Sarri lately as well. The former Lazio gaffer doesn’t convince their officials too much, though.

Our Take on Milan and Conceiçao

His brand of football is a little grittier than what they are used to, but he’d surely be a better choice than most of the other candidates. There’s a chance they are getting exploited in a power struggle, though.
