Seedorf out, Inzaghi in at Milan - reports

FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why Kaka and Robinho's potential move to the new MLS franchise might not be as impactful as people hope.

Filippo Inzaghi is on the verge of being named as the new coach of AC Milan after spending almost four hours in talks with club president Silvio Berlusconi and general manager Adriano Galliani on Monday night, according to widespread reports.

- Paul: AC Milan season review

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Inzaghi arrived at Berlusconi's residence at Arcore, near Milan, together with Galliani, who for the second night running was summoned to analyse the 2013-14 season.

The Rossoneri missed out on European football for the first time in 16 years after finishing in eighth place, and current coach Clarence Seedorf is set to be ousted as a result.

Seedorf, who signed a contract until 2016 when he replaced Massimiliano Allegri in January, managed to pick up 35 points from his 22 games in charge -- winning half of them -- but that was ultimately not sufficient to take Milan into Europe next season.

They finished one point short of sixth-placed Torino and were eliminated from the Coppa Italia by Udinese and the Champions League by eventual runners-up Atletico Madrid.

Berlusconi refused to back Seedorf earlier in May, stating: "Let's just wait and see how the season ends. Then, as we always have done at Milan, we will decide together, with the managerial staff, who have the responsibility for the team, and with the board of advisors. It's all still up in the air."

Inzaghi was in charge of Milan's youth team this season, leading them to success in the prestigious Viareggio youth tournament.

He was wanted by Sassuolo over the winter, but Milan refused to release Inzaghi from a two-year contract as their youth team coach.

His appointment as first-team coach, two years after ending an 11-year playing career with the Rossoneri, now seems inevitable with Berlusconi and Galliani due to discuss a release package with Seedorf, who is set to earn a reported ten million euros for the remaining two years on his contract, making him an expensive four-month gamble.
