Milan Wouldn’t Face a Lot of Competition for De Zerbi

Milan are regrouping following the fan protest against Julen Lopetegui, and Roberto De Zerbi is being considered, although he’d be by far the most expensive option. Considering the international landscape, there’s a clear pathway to hire him, but they’d have to overcome Brighton’s resistance, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The coach has been linked to prestigious openings but most have been filled. Xavi has changed his mind and decided to stay at Barcelona. Liverpool have chosen Arne Slot. Bayern Munich are still an option but appear to have zeroed in on Ralf Rangnick.

De Zerbi came up in the Milan youth academy but never made it to their first team, as he spent most of his career in small teams. He has often stated that the Rossoneri are special to him.

On the other hand, the clubs that want to hire them need to activate a €14M release clause. His contract expires in 2026. It won’t be easy to poach him even if Brighton have had a pretty unremarkable season. They have struggled to juggle a busier schedule following their Europa League qualification. They are right in the middle of the table.

Our Take on Milan and De Zerbi

He and Thiago Motta are the most exciting options, as they are both ultra-modern and on the rise but already have some accomplishments under their belt. His former assistant Francesco Farioli, who’s doing fine at Nice, is a step below but would be better than a host of names linked to them so far.
