Tuttosport: COVID-19 throws Rangnick’s arrival at Milan into doubt – the situation

By Oliver Fisher -

Ralf Rangnick has not signed a deal with AC Milan yet, a report claims, and there are still doubts regarding a potential move to Italy.

Speculation linking Rangnick with a role at Milan as head coach and sporting director has been rife, and CFO Zvonimir Boban seemed to confirm that CEO Ivan Gazidis has agreed a deal with the German, which led to the Croatian being dismissed earlier this month.

However, Thursday’s edition of Tuttosport – as cited by MilanLive – writes that the outbreak of the Coronavirus emergency could drive Rangnick away from Milan. He is a manager who takes planning and preparation incredibly seriously, but the suspension and postponement of the championships complicate everything.

The transfer market will be delayed and also the summer preparation of most teams, the paper writes, a scenario that may have repercussions on the arrival of Rangnick.

In his head there are doubts, also linked to the budget he will have to build the team. He knows that landing in a club like Milan is a fundamental test for his career and one he does not want to failt. Despite his reflections, Rangnick is still studying Italian as he wants to be ready in case everything is agreed.

Gazidis and Elliott want to entrust him with the revival of Milan, and in the coming weeks we will find out if this is a possibility.
