Rangnick confirms contacts with Milan and says he has informed Red Bull

By Isak Möller -

Ralf Rangnick remains in pole position to replace Stefano Pioli for next season. This summer, AC Milan are set for a youth revolution and the German manager is the ideal profile to lead the new project. 

For many months now, there have been reports about the matter, all suggesting that Rangnick is close to an agreement with the Rossoneri. However, the Coronavirus has inevitably slowed things down, adding uncertainty to the future.

A few days ago, the German manager broke the silence as he confirmed Milan’s interest. In an interview with BILD (via Calciomercato.com), which was in this morning’s edition, he confirmed that there have been contacts with the Rossoneri.

“If I can exclude that I will be at Milan? What can be excluded in football? I can’t exclude it completely. Milan asked me for my availability so I informed Red Bull and there were talks with my agent. Then came the coronavirus and more important issues arose,” he stated.

In other words, it’s all starting to come together. As CEO Ivan Gazidis and Elliott have made Rangnick their top priority, contacts will likely resume soon although the Coronavirus has made things significantly harder with regards to next season.
