Report: Milan avoid Rangnick penalty fee; Maldini prioritises renewal of Ibrahimovic

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will avoid paying any kind of penalty fee for the collapse of Ralf Rangnick’s proposed arrival, according to one journalist.

It seemed almost certain that Rangnick would arrive and lead a new revolution once the season was over, but during the first half of Tuesday night’s win over Sassuolo reports began to emerge stating otherwise.

Kicker were the first to state that the German would not join and that in fact Stefano Pioli would sign a new deal and remain, something the club confirmed after the game.

According to what is being reported by Vito Angele on Twitter, Milan will not have to pay any compensation or penalty fee to Rangnick for the cancellation of the pre-agreement that was in place, despite rumours stating otherwise.

Angele adds that now the market scenarios are changing because Pioli considers Ibrahimovic’s renewal fundamental in order to aim for a top four finish next season.
