Denials have arrived from sources in Germany regarding the possibility of Julian Nagelsmann following Ralf Rangnick to Milan, according to one journalist.
So far there has always been talk of the double role he would play, and we reported via our correspondent Vito Angele on Thursday evening that Rangnick will indeed agree a role as manager – that is the double responsibility of head coach and the man in charge of the transfer market.
However, La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday published a report claiming the German could arrive as a technical director only and entrust the head coaching duties to another coach, with RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann on pole.
According to Simone Cristao of Radio Rossonera on Twitter though, those are baseless rumours.
He claims to have contacted Yvonne Gabriel of Bild in Leipzig who is adamant Nagelsmann will remain for another year, describing what La Gazzetta write as ‘madness’.
Risp: non accadrà mai, Nagelsmann resterà a Lipsia almeno un altro anno, ciò che è scritto è follia
