Gennaro Gattuso could yet stay on as AC Milan boss, according to reports, as the club are wary of how expensive it is to sack him.

The Corriere della Sera claims it will cost Milan in the region of 8million euros to dismiss Gattuso and they are now having a rethink after previous widespread reports suggested he was set for the axe this summer.

Milan still have a chance of making the top four in Serie A as they sit fifth, three points behind Atalanta directly above them and four behind third-placed Inter, with two games to play.

However, the club’s hierarchy are believed to be unhappy with Gattuso, and former Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco and Chelsea chief Maurizio Sarri are believed to be under consideration to replace him.

A decision will be made at the end of the season and much will depend on if Gattuso does guide his side into the top four in the final two games of the campaign, against Frosinone on Sunday and SPAL next weekend.
