Gazzetta dello Sport via Football Italia are reporting that AC Milan maintain a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with current manager Stefano Pioli up until the end of the season. The report notes that the final position of Milan in the table this season will decide whether or not Pioli will be kept on. The Italian provides a much cheaper alternative to Ralf Rangnick and if he finishes in the European spots could make a convincing argument to keep his job.

Pioli took over Milan from Marco Giampaolo when the side had 3 wins and 4 losses. He has since led the team to 9 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses in all competitions. Milan currently sit in seventh position with 36 points; 3 points off the Europa League and 12 points off the Champions League.
