Atalanta chief Percassi slams AC Milan talk for Gasperini

Atalanta have dismissed claims of Gian Piero Gasperini being linked with AC Milan.

Gasperini has been mentioned as a replacement for Rino Gattuso.

But Serie A coaches cannot take charge of two teams in the same division in the same season, so any move couldn't happen until 2019-20.

“There's nothing and these rumours are unfounded," CEO Luca Percassi insisted, speaking to ANSA.

“During the international break they need to write something, but at the moment the transfer market is the last thing on our minds."
