Its a microATX, but the ASrock 365M Phantom Gaming 4 would be very nice:

Add ~30 euros for the ATX version. You could also go with the Asrock B360 Pro4 or B365 Pro4, but you would lose the upgraded sound with the ALC1200 codec. If you get the B360, make sure that the bios have been updated for Intel 9th gen chips.
ok but i wanna ask about these motherboards too;
MSI B360M Bazooka Plus
Gigabyte B360M Aorus Gaming 3 (rev. 1.0)
MSI B360M Mortar
is any of these better than the asrock that you mentioned? thanks a lot by the way
 
I didn't see the Bazooka Plus or the non-wifi Aorus as being available in your area.

Only the Asrock Phantom has upgraded audio with ALC1200. All of the boards have two M.2 slots except the Bazooka Plus has one. All have at least one front panel USB 3.1 port, some have more.

Phantom: Five 3.1 rear USB ports (all gen 1) plus 2 USB 2. Three LED headers.
Bazooka Plus: Two USB 3 rear ports (all gen 2) plus 4 USB 2. One LED header.
Aorus Gaming 3 : Four USB 3.1 (one is gen 2) rear ports. Four USB 2 rear ports. 4 LED headers.
MSI Mortor: Two USB 3.1 (both gen 2) rear ports. Four USB 2 rear ports. 1 LED header.

The Aorus Gaming 3 looks nice too, except lacks the ALC1200 codec for upgraded sound.

The ports that you said about Aorus gaming 3 is about ATX or mATX motherboard? Because the ATX is over 100euros here!
 
They have said to me that if i buy a b360 mobo then i must have a 8th gen cpu to update the bios for the i5 9400f, that s true?
I mentioned it post #3. Old stock of B360's will need updating. New stock (since the 9th gen was announced) should have the updated bio's already. They must have old stock. Does the store have an 8th gen CPU that you can borrow or can they do the update for you?

yeah i must ask about that in the store, but the b365 don t need update in any case right?
