AC Milan are set to have a crucial meeting with Ralf Rangnick where they will try and reach a full agreement, a report claims.
There are conflicting rumours among the papers in Italy at present regarding whether Rangnick will arrive this summer, with some claiming that there has been a pre-agreement since December while others insist the situation is entirely up in the air.
Sky Italia reported on Friday that Rangnick is in fact in pole position to take over from Stefano Pioli, but then the German himself came out and denied the existence of any agreement with Milan.
According to what is reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Rangnick’s future is linked to the developments of the Coronavirus emergency. The longer it takes to return to normal, the less chance of seeing the German on the Rossoneri bench.
Rangnick is a meticulous professional and would hardly accept to throw himself into such an intriguing but complicated challenge without having the right time to plan everything.
The parties however will continue to talk, despite the public denials. The contacts over the last few weeks (strictly on conference call) have served to overcome some misunderstandings, such as the available budget.
Rangnick and Gordon Singer have decided to take stock of the situation with a face-to-face interview, which will take place when the Coronavirus emergency is over.
