Multiple outlets including Tuttosport, Sky Sport Italia and Tuttomercatoweb via Football Italia are reporting that Torino have an agreement with Marco Giampaolo to takeover this summer. The manager was fired from AC Milan at the beginning of the season after just seven games. He is still on the books for another year but this appointment could change that. Milan could saves 4 million euros in gross wages as a result. The deal will reportedly be closed next week for two years.

Torino's director Vagnati via Football Italia said:

“Giampaolo is certainly a coach that we really like and an excellent tactician. He is currently under contract with another club, so it wouldn’t be right to say too much about it.”

“Let’s just say he is a coach we admire very much.”

Current manager Moreno Longo seemingly confirms the rumours as well as he said via Football Italia:

“This was my last match at Torino,”

“I wish to thank those who allowed me the opportunity to come here, as well as all those who accompanied me in this adventure. I was brought here and asked to save Torino from the threat of relegation. I achieved that.”
