CM: Milan consider sacking Boban, Maldini and hiring one man in history-making role

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could undergo yet another huge revolution next summer by giving one man control over all aspects of the club, a shock report claims.

Elliott Management and CEO Ivan Gazidis have plans about how they would like the structure of the club to look moving forward, according to Calciomercato.com, meaning that a number of changes could come in 2020.

The report claims that Gazidis and Elliott are monitoring the former RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick with the idea of potentially given him a role like no other seen before in Italy.

The German would be essentially become the head coach, chief scout and also director of sport for the Rossoneri, controlling all powers at the club in a similar way to how Sir Alex Ferguson did at Manchester United.

This would mean that both Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban would be sacked due to potential differences in the philosophy of the club.

The report notes how Rangnick outlined his ideal role in a recent interview for newspaper The Guardian, stating: “I have to influence areas of development across the whole club.”

Rangnick is currently in charge of scouting and external relations of the entire Red Bull football brand, which includes the likes of the New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg.

Calciomercato add that Rangnick has been contacted by Manchester United in recent weeks as a potential candidate to take on the role of technical director, but it seems unlikely following meetings with Ed Woodward.

Bayern Munich are also mentioned as interested in the idea of hiring him to replace Niko Kovac, though their fortunes have also transformed recently.

Finally, the outlet concludes by adding that Gordon Singer – the son of majority shareholder Paul Singer – would likely be behind the idea of bringing Rangnick in to lead a revolution.
