RR: Lower average salary and an aggressive mercato – Elliott’s blueprint for Rangnick’s Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s visions in view of the next transfer window have reportedly been outlined, with no hard salary cap and the potential to spend substantial fees.

According to what is reported by Radio Rossonera, Milan will use having a financially solid owner – Elliott Management Corporation – to exploit what the market and the weaknesses of other clubs will offer.

The Rossoneri will therefore try to be ‘more aggressive’ in view of the market but will look to bring down the average salary that each player earns, however they are not afraid to pay more substantial transfer fees for the right profile.

There will be no hard salary cap and there will be exceptions, such as the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma – for which there is the common interest of all parties to reach an agreement – and signings of experience like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The co-existence of Ralf Rangnick and Paolo Maldini is difficult, but not impossible. An attempt was made to try to reconcile the two positions by also offering different roles to the current technical director, but it didn’t go down well. What is clear though is that Rangnick will be the man in charge.
