Mediaset: Full powers, €80m budget and 20 staff – all of Rangnick’s demands to Milan
By Oliver Fisher -

Ralf Rangnick has set a list of demands that must be adhered to if he is to undertake a new project at AC Milan, according to a report.

Journalist Claudio Raimondi is reporting for SportMediaset (via MilanNews) that Rangnick has placed some essential conditions in the equation before he accepts a role at Milan.

First of all, the German wants a contract of at least four years and wants to cover both the role of coach and technical area, asking for his own personal office at Casa Milan.

Rangnick would like to be an English-style manager and Geoffrey Moncada, currently head of Milan’s scouting department, would be promoted to the role of sporting director.

However, there is a point that is creating some friction with Elliott, namely the one concerning the staff: the 61-year-old does not want a simple technical staff like other coaches, but a wider staff composed of about 20 collaborators.

These would include men on the training field as well as scouts, analysts and those who work more on the market – all who share his vision and philosophy.

As for the market, Rangnick asks for a budget of €80million, and must be convinced that this sum could increase thanks to the sales of some players such as Franck Kessie and Lucas Paquetà plus the savings of Ibrahimovic’s salary.

Rangnick will focus on young players (average age 22-23 years) who already have some international experience.
