MILAN, June 23 (Reuters) - Former Cesena coach Pierpaolo
Bisoli was appointed manager of Serie A side Cagliari on
Wednesday, opening the way for their former boss Massimiliano
Allegri to take over at AC Milan.
Serie A coach of the year Allegri was sacked by the
Sardinians after a row in April and was chosen by Milan to
replace Leonardo, who departed after leading the Rossoneri to
third in Serie A in his only season in charge.
Cagliari at first refused to release Allegri from his
contract despite his sacking but the appointment of Bisoli means
Milan may now be close to naming their man.
Cagliari said in a statement that Bisoli would be presented
to the media as their coach now he has ended his relationship
with Cesena, having led the modest club from the third tier to
Serie A in the last two seasons.
Italy's soccer finance watchdog has reported Cesena for
irregularities but their participation in the top-flight next
season is not at risk at this stage.
Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has said there is no
rush in confirming Allegri and has been busy looking for players
with Sevilla's Brazil striker Luis Fabiano again top of his wish
