Stefano Pioli is all but confirmed to sign a two year contract with AC Milan after Marco Giampaolo was dismissed yesterday. Pioli will reportedly earn €1.5 million per year and sign his contract this morning. The hashtag #PioliOut continues to trend worldwide on Twitter.

Gianluca di Marzio reported a video of Pioli where he said he will address Milan fans tomorrow almost confirming his appointment. There have been confirmations from a variety of sources on his staff that will include his son and claims that only Milan's goalkeeping coach will remain as the rest of Giampaolo's staff follow his exit. His first training session will be today at Milanello.
