Stories have surfaced about the prospect of former AC Milan player Clarence Seedorf becoming the new AC Milan manager and taking over the AC Milan shirt. Rumours surrounding this have been talked about before at the very start of may, with reports that either him or Van Bommel would take over from current boss Massimiliano Allegri. Former Manchester City and current AC Milan Striker Mario Balotelli expressed his disappointment that AC Milan may be getting rid of Allegri.

Most of the doubt came at the start of the 2012-13 season when Milan got off to a very poor start. It wasn't long after star players such as Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva played their last game and left for Paris Saint Germain. When the two players left last year the side started to go downhill, they sat in 15th place in October 2012. As the season went on AC Milan got used to life without their star players  picked themselves up even managing to qualify for the Champion's League. Fans have been behind Allegri all the way but it seems the behind the scenes staff have other ideas.

We will find out the real truth on Wednesday night no doubt, after the boardroom have discussed Allegri's future and make a decision on whether to keep him or not. If Milan do decide to take the responsibility of the players away from Allegri there are plenty of managers and former players rumoured to be taking over. The main name that keeps appearing over the internet is Clarence Seedorf. The midfielder played for AC Milan from 2002 up until June 2012 when he moved to Botafogo, signing a two year deal. Seedorf is a well known player and is known as a great footballer, he has played for Ajax, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Ac Milan and now Botafogo.

Other stories involving Milan boss Allegri included the Italian supposedly switching to Roma to manage the club, this story has been repeated many times but the 45 year old has stayed at Milan in charge of the AC Milan. The Botofogo coach has laughed off reports that Seedorf may take over at Milan, insisting it won't happen. Certain other football coaches and players seemed to agree, former England manager Fabio Capello being one of these, he has spoken out and stated "I trained Seedorf many years ago and always respected him, but being Coach of Milan is not a joke. As a first experience, it could be a big risk."

Until the news about what has been agreed in the meeting on Wednesday surfaces we will not know for sure but anyone who decides to take on the Italian side must be prepared for the amount of pressure to finish top of the table and achieve some high points. During the summer transfer window AC Milan may need to bring in some more big names to play in the AC Milan shirt, hopefully they will sort themselves out and whether Allegri stays on at Milan or not we wish him the very best.
