CM: Ex-Milan duo and three key RB Leipzig figures among staff Rangnick wants

By Oliver Fisher -

Ralf Rangnick is beginning to think about assembling his staff ahead of a new role at AC Milan, according to a report.

Calciomercato.com claims there could be promotion for figures already present at the club such as chief scout Geoffrey Moncada, Hendrik Almstadt – the right-hand man of CEO Ivan Gazidis – and Daniele Massaro.

For the latter, in particular, there may be a new role as team manager so as to support Rangnick each day at Milanello.

The prices of coach Daniele Bonera are also on the rise, and he is moving towards confirming a stay despite an interesting proposal from Villarreal for the role of deputy sporting director.

Another Italian who could stay at Casa Milan is sporting director Frederic Massara, especially when considering that Red Bull are ready to block any pursuit of Leipzig counterpart Paul Mitchell.

As for foreigners, the German manager is ready to focus on three names in particular: in addition to the aforementioned Mitchell there is also Lars Konetka – his deputy at his time in Leipzig and current assistant to Julian Nagelsmann – and Moritz Volz, former Arsenal player and currently at Leipzig.

His philosophy and revolution could extend down to the Primavera too. Elliott Management appreciate the work that current boss Angelo Carbone is doing, but Rangnick is very sensitive to the topic and would like to appoint his own choice to further extend influence.
