By now the negotiations that will bring Claudio Ranieri to the Sampdoria bench can be considered close. The Italian coach took over a similiar situation for Roma last year in the second part of the season, as he also took over for Eusebio Di Francesco in that situation.
The parties have found an agreement in the last few hours. The only thing missing now are the details for the second year of the contract. Ranieri will sign a two year deal worth 2 million euro per season.
