MN: Rangnick meeting not imminent; Szoboszlai, Jovic, Boadu – Milan’s market strategy

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Ralf Rangnick are set for a decisive meeting but not any time in the immediate future, a report claims, though a list of targets has been drawn up.

According to the latest from MilanNews reporter Pietro Mazzara, Milan and Rangnick will meet physically, but there are logistical problems related to the mandatory quarantine in England and commitments already made by the German manager that do not allow scheduling the final meeting between the parties.

This does not mean that a conference call cannot be activated, but the details to be put in black and white make it necessary to have a discussion in person, with all the parties involved.

Rangnick will most likely come and lay the groundwork for his project and he will also have less time to work than normal seasons, as the gap between the end of the 2019-20 season and the beginning of 2020-21 campaign looks set to be shorter than a usual preseason.

Dominik Szoboszlai of Red Bull Salzburg is a concrete target as he is the prototype of what the German manager is looking for. After that the search for a centre-forward will begin. Luka Jovic is definitely at the top of the list with Boadu the alternative.

Rafael Leao will have the time and opportunity to show what he’s made of, but he is under pressure.
