Mirabelli: Conte not a target for Milan

Copa America 2019: Suarez, Cavani on target in Uruguay win

AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli has rubbished reports that suggest Antonio Conte is being considered to replace Vincenzo Montella.

The Serie A giants are currently off the pace after just seven games of the 2017/18 season.

Four wins coupled with three losses sees Milan in seventh place, on 12 points, some nine points adrift of leaders Napoli.

Having began his tenure at the club in July 2016, Montella led the Rossoneri to the Supercoppa Italiana and a sixth-placed finish, to secure Milan's return to European competition for the first time since 2014.

But with Conte guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge, he is seen as one contender to help Milan fully regain their glory days.

Mirabelli told Radio Rossonera: "We have a coach we are happy with, we do not think about anyone else."

Mirabelli also spoke of the possibility of signing Torino forward Andrea Belotti.

"It is well known that we tried to bring [Belotti] to Milan. It was difficult for several reasons.

"But he is a strong player and a Milan fan. Who knows? Maybe one day he can wear the shirt he dreamt of as a child."
