The rumours have certainly cooled down, but the track leading to Ralf Rangnick hasn’t hit a complete roadblock. By the looks of it, AC Milan are optimistic about bringing in the German, keen on rebuilding the team this summer.
According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it), the Rossoneri are focusing on the agreement, having already entered a serious phase. It’s currently a period of reflection, but the parties reached an agreement in principle a while back.
The Coronavirus emergency, however, has changed everything from top to bottom, including football. In recent weeks, Rangnick has started to reflect on the deal, also because Milan made some changed to the initial promises.
For example, per the newspaper, the Rossoneri have lowered the budget for the transfer market due to the economic crisis in the world. However, this shouldn’t be a decisive factor for the outcome of the negotiations.
There is another problem, though, and that is time. If the current season ends in July, there would be fewer weeks for transfer negotiations and to prepare the team for the upcoming season. It remains to be seen how the saga will end.
