AC Milan have made Thiago Motta a priority for the upcoming season

Persistent rumours swirl around Stefano Pioli’s potential departure from AC Milan. Equally persistent are the speculations surrounding Thiago Motta’s likely arrival. The Italian club is keen to secure the services of the former Paris Saint-Germain player turned coach.

Thiago Motta’s early career is noteworthy. With Bologna, the former midfielder achieved remarkable feats, propelling the team to fourth place in Serie A, ahead of powerhouses like the two Roman teams and Napoli. Naturally, his performances have caught the eye, and the Italian tactician is coveted by other giants of Italian football, notably AC Milan.

Thiago Motta, a point of contention between AC Milan and Juventus

According to Sacha Tavolieri‘s information, AC Milan have made Thiago Motta a priority, if not the top choice, for the upcoming season. The Lombard club aims to enlist the former midfielder, thus addressing the anticipated departure of current coach Stefano Pioli. This trend is corroborated by Corriere della Sera, which specifies that AC Milan have earmarked Thiago Motta’s name ahead of those of Julen Lopetegui, Antonio Conte, or Roberto De Zerbi. The Italian media asserts that AC Milan has renewed its pursuit after establishing contact with Motta’s camp last winter.

However, the 41-year-old coach is also on Juventus’s radar. According to our fellow journalists Nicolo Schira and Gianluca Di Marzio, the Old Lady has made significant progress in this matter. Juventus’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, and Thiago Motta have reportedly reached an agreement for him to take over the helm at the end of the season. The former Inter Milan player is expected to sign a contract until 2026, with an option for an additional year in 2027, with the Old Lady.
