Ralf Rangnick proposed move to Italy to take the reigns at AC Milan is on stand-by for the time being due to a number of different doubts, a report claims.
As Wednesday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport reports (via MilanLive), there is now a strong risk of the German snubbing a new adventure in Serie A because of a number of key factors.
The first is linked to the particular moment that Italy and Europe are experiencing because of the coronavirus. Rangnick is a coach who needs time to be able to impose his methods, and this extends to preseason.
If Serie A resumes and goes from May until June or July as some hypotheses are stating, the preseason will be compressed into 30-40 days which is not enough time to get the squad up to speed with his style and system, and not enough time to work on the market.
There is also the mercato budget to consider, as the newspaper claims that there no agreement between the 61-year-old and Milan regarding the amount of money that will be available for purchases in the summer.
Rangnick could therefore rethink and wait for a better time to take a leap like this. Diving into a completely new world and among other things with an uncertain situation both at the club and in the country does not seem to appeal at present.
