Clarence Seedorf WILL succeed Massimiliano Allegri as the next coach AC Milan.
La Repubblica says Seedorf, currently playing in Brazil with Botafogo, has signed a pre-contract with Milan and will take charge at the end of this season.
Seedorf will gain his necessary coaching badges by April and there is a penalty clause of €1 million in compensation should either party walk away from the agreement.
Milan president Silvio Berlusconi negotiated the deal himself, though it has also the support of his No2, Adriano Galliani.
Massimiliano Allegri will remain in charge of Milan for the remainder of the season before stepping aside for Seedorf in June.
