Former Milan player Gennaro Gattuso will take charge until the end of the season.

And the Serie A giants are hoping they can persuade Conte to ditch English champs Chelsea in order to lead a Milanese revolution in the 2018/19 campaign.

It’s said that director Vincenzo Montella flew to London to watch England’s friendly against Brazil on November 14.

But he also used his time in the capital to hold talks with Conte’s entourage, telling them that the ex-Juventus chief is Milan’s absolute priority.

It’s added that the San Siro outfit were even prepared to sack Montella last summer if Conte was willing to abandon his Stamford Bridge project after just one season.

But unfortunately for Milan, the gaffer is believed to be happy at Chelsea – despite some small concerns.

And he is also waiting to see if he will get a greater say in future signings following the departure of transfer guru Michael Emenalo.
