Ralf Rangnick wants a meeting in person with CEO Ivan Gazidis before committing his future to AC Milan’s project, a journalist has claimed.
According to the latest from Sky Italia’s Manuele Baiocchini (via MilanNews), the German wants to speak face-to-face with Gazidis when international borders are open. Rangnick is continuing to think about joining Milan, and Milan want to entrust him with their youth-oriented revolution.
Baiocchini recalls how he has been informed by some people that Rangnick has in the past struggled to convince some players to join on the phone, but then solve everything after a meeting in person, such is the charisma he demonstrates.
In the last days many rumours have surfaced regarding the idea he may only be in charge of the market and not the head coach, from what Sky understand Rangnick would come to Milan only if he could control both.
Due to the impact of Coronavirus on the world of football, Milan’s budget for the next market is lower than what had been proposed to Rangnick after the December meeting in which an agreement was found.
The two sides have to talk again to see if it is possible to start a new cycle together, a cycle that obviously would not include Pioli, Maldini and Massara.
