Who will train whom? Here is what could happen according to rumors.

Atalanta: Gasperini (confirmed - possible). The club will try their best to keep him and won't look for different solutions until they have a hope that he stays.
Bologna: Mihajlovic (confirmed - possible). Mihajlovic will look for a better club and will stay just if no one makes him an offer.
Brescia: Corini (confirmed - certain)
Cagliari: Maran (confirmed - possible). Three defeats in a row haven't changed the scenario. I believe he will be confirmed. Obviously, Maran has to gain the permanence in serie A yet.
Empoli: Andreazzoli (confirmed - unlikely). The permanence of Empoli in serie A is unlikely first of all.
Fiorentina: Montella (confirmed - possible). Montella had to be the coach for the next season but if the team doesn't gain points in the last two games the management might change the coach during the summer.
Genoa: Prandelli (confirmed - highly unlikely). The former coach of Italy has disappointed and no matter whether he manages to save Genoa it is very likely that Preziosi will replace him.
Inter: Conte (new - probable), Allegri (new - possible), Spalletti (confirmed - unlikely). Spalletti has failed to convince the club in spite of one qualification to the CL in the past season and another one almost obtained in this one, two achievements which are all but obvious. Probably the way he has dealt with the Icardi affaire has affected his position more than any result on the pitch.
Juventus: Simone Inzaghi (new - possible), Conte (new - possibile), Deschamps (new - unlikely), Guardiola (new - highly unlikely). Now that the divorce with Allegri is official anything could happen.
Lazio: Simone Inzaghi (confirmed - unlikely). The relation between Inzaghino and Lotito has not been the easiest, if we have to trust the newspapers. It is possible that Simone Inzaghi will try the big step in his career.
Lecce: Liverani (confirmed - certain)
Milan: Gattuso (confirmed - unlikely), Di Francesco (new - possible), Gasperini (new - possible), Sarri (new - possible), Simone Inzaghi (new - possible) Giampaolo (new - possible). The fact that Gattuso will stay is as unlikely as Milan gaining the CL spot. It is all but clear who will replace him.
Napoli: Ancelotti (confirmed - almost certain).
Parma: D'Aversa (confirmed - possible). The coach who was born in Stuttgart had a great start of the season but the troubled end of it puts a big question mark on his permanence.
Roma: Gasperini (new - possible), Sarri (new - possible), Giampaolo (new - possible). Ranieri is just the ferryman. Out of Di Francesco, Roma are looking for a coach pretty much in the same list Milan have.
Sampdoria: Giampaolo (confirmed - unlikely), Semplici (new - possible). After three seasons Giampaolo has announced that he wants Sampdoria to improve or he will leave. He is very likely leaving, ok?
Sassuolo: De Zerbi (confirmed - probable). The former coach of Palermo and Foggia has announced he wants to remain at Sassuolo.
SPAL: Semplici (confirmed - possible). After a few great seasons with SPAL the coach from Florence might feel like it's time to join a bigger club.
Torino: Mazzarri (confirmed - certain).
Udinese: Tudor (confirmed - unlikely). No matter whether Udinese stay in serie A (very likely), the future of Tudor will be likely elsewhere.

Thank you Toni for this awesome work. I feel like inter will kick themselves for pulling the trigger early on Conte when they could have had Allegri but Conte is still a good choice.

Milan fans seem entitled complaining so much about the various options. The bigger question is who will Roma get? Basically no one is linked to go there; the Roman rumour front is quite bare, and I wonder if there is not a huge let down from the fans with the way they handled the De Rossi retirement.

If Montella gets confirmed by Fiore's new ownership, and especially if the ownership is ambitious and invests in building a new team, he should count himself as one of the luckiest managers out there. He should play the lottery all the time. That would be a thoroughly underserved second chance in conditions that very few managers ever get.

Petrachi, the sporting director of Tor... Roma (!!), met Paulo Fonseca in Madrid. Roma have offered a 2-season contract with an option for the third to the Portuguese coach.

Carnevali, ad of Sassuolo, confirms that the coach of Sassuolo for the next season is De Zerbi.

Another update.



Mihajlovic wants more money for staying at Bologna but Saputo will make him happy.

It looks like Eugenio Corini finally accepted all the conditions of Cellino and will stay at Brescia. It won't be easy for "Genio" and I bet on him for first coach to be sacked.

Commisso admitted that even if he doesn't like firing people, he might choose to sack Montella. The replacement could be top club material.

Genoa might be sold very soon and this might be the reason why Preziosi has not chosen the coach for the next season yet.

Giampaolo to Milan just needs an official announcement, Pioli is going to replace him at Sampdoria, unless the management convinces Di Francesco.

Andreazzoli should be the new coach of Genoa. Bye bye Prandelli.



Ferrero might have convinced Di Francesco. Pioli remains the one alternative for Sampdoria.



Commisso, contrarily to predictions, might keep Montella.

Fiorentina keeping Montella is a bad decision. I used to think he was not that terrible, but his results have been catastrophic since Milan allowed him to stay in a similar situation -- and at least at that time he had done decently the previous, Fiore have no reason to keep him. The guy has a dark cloud over him these days.

Yeah, keeping Montella is so wrong that I would start to doubt Commisso's willingness to spend if he did it. I'd also start to wonder whether he is really going to reject the rich offers for Federico Chiesa he receives.

It is weird indeed. Expect Montella to get fired after Xmas.

Not nearly so weird as the contract of Di Francesco according to which his wages would include (if we have to trust Primocanale, a local Genovese channel) the 1% of every next "plusvalenza".

Which coach will be sacked the first? According to Sisal it's either Juric or Liverani (3.00), but Corini is very close (3.50), so the coaches of the freshly promoted clubs are the obvious choices. Montella and Andreazzoli are not far (4.00).
Considering that the chairman is Cellino, my money on the coach of Brescia.
