The negotiation between Rangnick and Milan is continuing, a report claims, with the German having made a specific request.
So far there has always been talk of the double role he would play, and we reported via our correspondent Vito Angele on Thursday evening that Rangnick will indeed agree a role as manager – that is the double responsibility of head coach and the man in charge of the transfer market.
Sunday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) writes that Rangnick wants to have full powers in the management of the sporting area. This would represent a centralisation that would make the chain of command within the club much more streamlined and vertical.
The choice of Rangnick comes directly from Gordon Singer of Elliott Management, who hopes to convince him to accept the dual role of head coach and manager of the recruitment aspect.
The 61-year-old, nicknamed ‘The Professor’ has never dismissed the possibility of returning to the bench, and Milan are insistent on the idea of him coaching as well as building the team.
Therefore, there would be two reference figures in the ‘new Milan’: CEO Ivan Gazidis as managing director and Rangnick at the head of the entire sports area.
