Ralf Rangnick has already signed a contract to take over at AC Milan next season, according to the latest reports from France.
German outlet Bild dropped a bombshell earlier in the month when they claimed that Rangnick – the current head of development for Red Bull football – is in advanced talks to take over as Milan head coach and sporting director for next season.
Calciomercato.com then reported on Tuesday that the German is aware his name is now in the public domain and his hope is to wipe out any doubts about his future as soon as possible, even with a public announcement or confirmation from Milan.
According to the latest from L’Equipe – as cited by a report on Calciomercato.com – the former Leipzig coach has already signed a contract with Milan with a rich penalty in case the Rossoneri change their mind.
The French outlet believe the deal is done despite Boban and Maldini having other ideas for the bench, but the report from Calciomercato goes on to claim that sources close to Elliott deny that Rangnick has signed anything.
Milan in the future will have a new coach and a new technical project in all likelihood, but at the moment there is no clarity and no name should be considered a favourite.
