The centre-back, 34, has impressed at the Bentegodi over the past two seasons and is said to have penned a two-year deal to join Milan in the summer when his contract with the Flying Donkeys runs out.
“Mario is a great defender and he deserves an important deal with an important team like Milan,” Pellissier said to Sportitalia.
“But it’s only fair that he will be the one to tell you if he has already signed for Milan…” he laughed.
Yepes will provide cover for defensive duo Thiago Silva and Alessandro Nesta next term as veteran Giuseppe Favalli will retire at the end of the season.
