Italian journalist describes Rangnick to Milan as ‘Elliott’s first real move’

By Isak Möller -

Ralf Rangnick continues to be heavily linked with AC Milan. The Rossoneri are set for a youth revolution this summer and the German has been identified as the perfect candidate, currently working with the Red Bull empire. 

According to the Italian journalist Carlo Pellegati (Radio 24 via MilanNews.it), Rangnick remains the number one choice for Milan. In fact, he’s even taking an intensive Italian course to be better prepared for the job.

This would be Elliott’s ‘first real move’ at the club, as Pellegatti describes it. Although bringing in Leonardo was also their decision, he was recommended to them. Given how important Rangnick has been for the Red Bull empire, it’s certainly a big move.

However, before accepting an offer, the German wants reassurances and one of his demands is being given free rein. This was reported by today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport, underlining how much power the 61-year-old would have.
