AC Milan are making a sensational move to have Pep Guardiola installed as new coach by January.Corriere dello Sport says Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is already drawing up plans to restructure the football department - which will include Guardiola's arrival.

The former Barcelona coach will be given total power over transfer policy, effectively making him both head coach and technical director.

Only last week, Guardiola's former Brescia coach and close friend Carlo Mazzone declared he expected the Spaniard to soon move to Milan.
