The denials that arrived from Ralf Rangnick on Friday regarding a role at Milan may not mean he will not join in the summer, a report claims.
There are conflicting rumours among the papers in Italy at present regarding whether Rangnick will arrive this summer, with some claiming that there has been a pre-agreement since December while others deny its existence and insist the situation is entirely up in the air.
Sky Italia reported earlier today that Rangnick is in fact in pole position to take over from Stefano Pioli, but then the German himself came out and denied the existence of any agreement with Milan.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport on Saturday (via MilanLive), these words are a half admission of what is really boiling in the pot. That is because the contacts to which Rangnick refers are far from an outdated story, and the dialogue between the two parties is continuing.
At the moment there is no total agreement, the paper claims, or at least not so sure and promising compared to a few months ago. The coach and the club are discussing and discuss the various fundamental points of the new project such as the market budget, set at around €75m.
