GdS: Rangnick could replace Pioli immediately as Milan prepare plan B

By Nikita Fesyukov -

The future of AC Milan’s coaching position seems to be written, with Ralf Rangnick to take over the Rossoneri from next season onwards. This has been confirmed by sources in Italy (Gianluca Di Marzio) but also by his colleagues in Germany (Sky Germany). But could something change with regards to the German’s arrival?

The Red Bull executive is expected to sign a three-year agreement and will have a budget of 75 million euros (+ half of the income from sales) to work with during the transfer market.

The Rossoneri have been moving in absolute silence with regards to the German coach, but the first signs of the new era are already seen. Like the arrival of fullback Pierre Kalulu, who was approved by Rangnick himself before his arrival in the city.

The contacts between Rangnick and Milan’s chief scout Geoffrey Moncada are constant and both the Frenchman and Hendrik Almstadt have been working and observing the market for various talents in cohesion with the needs of the future coach.

However, as reported by Gazzetta dello Sport (via milanlive.it), Rangnick could take over at the San Siro even sooner than the season comes to an end.

The Milanese paper presumes that if Stefano Pioli’s results do not live up to expectations in the season finale, Rangnick’s arrival would be accelerated and the German would immediately arrive at the club.
