Milan Ready to Again Prolong Contract of Coach Pioli

While Milan are tending to a few thorny negotiations, the one to prolong the contract of Stefano Pioli will be easy. The club has already decided to stick with the title-winning coach, whose deal expires in 2023.

As per Tuttomercatoweb, the Rossoneri are unlikely to change their approach, and they will continue to hand the boss short-term extensions. The previous agreement already contained an option for the 2023/2024 season and a result-based pay bump. The management plans to pick it up.

Pioli led Milan back to the mountain top in Serie A last season, ending a lengthy Scudetto drought. He’s the gaffer with the highest point average in the history of the club, more than two per game. He has leapfrogged Carlo Ancelotti and Massimiliano Allegri in such stat.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato), the Rossoneri are also in advanced talks with Olivier Giroud. The striker wants to stay, and coming to terms shouldn’t take long. Instead, the discussions with Rafael Leao, Ismael Bennacer, and Pierre Kalulu need more time. The front office remains optimistic on every front.

Our Take on Milan Set to Re-Up with Pioli

They are quite lucky he doesn’t have an ego. He fully deserves a multi-year contract and to be among the highest-paid coaches in Serie A considering his success. He’s been brilliant in the last two seasons, and he isn’t simply a ‘game manager.’ His impeccable demeanor also sets the tone for the squad, which has bought into his methods and follows him religiously.
