Reports coming out of Italy suggest Domenico Berardi will snub Juventus in favour of following current boss Eusebio Di Francesco.

There is an alleged agreement in place allowing Juventus to sign the Italian starlet for €25 million in the summer but Gazetta dello Sport say the forward is unconvinced at his prospects at Juventus.

Tuttosport report that it is a two horse race between Di Francesco and Roberto Donadoni for the Milan hot seat come season end but the former is most appealing with his attractive football despite the latter being more experienced.

Mihajlovic on the way out?

Sky Italia have reported that Sinisa Mihajlovic will depart the rossoneri come summer time having been under intense pressure all season long, despite giving Milan relative success.

The Serbian joined in the Summer taking the reigns from Milan icon Pippo Inzaghi and has guided the club to the Coppa Italia final against Juventus as well as placing the team nine points shy of a Champions League spot.

Sky went on to say that Mihajlovic's main reason for departure, regardless of any further success is down to involvement of President Silvio Berlusconi. 

As soon as reports broke regarding the expected separation the 47-year-old was quickly linked to taking over at struggling Lazio in the summer.

Berardi always causes problems for Milan

Little over two years ago, a virtual unknown Domenico Berardi single handedly crushed Milan scoring all four goals in a 4-1 win for the Neroverdi at the San Siro.

At the tail end of the 2014/15 season Berardi netted a hat-trick albeit on home soil this time as Sassuolo outdone Milan once more.

Most recently Berardi played an influential role in Sassuolo's victory over Milan setting up both goals this past weekend.

To date the Italian U21 international has seven goals and six assists in 24 games in all competitions this season and continues to be linked with moves elsewhere.
