Milan want and must return to the Champions League in the near future, as the competition represents an important revenue source for the clubs. After yet another disappointing season, therefore, a revolution is expected.
According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it), Elliott and CEO Ivan Gazidis want to do with a team that has a low average age and a low wage bill. Precisely for this reason, Ralf Rangnick has been heavily linked with the club.
The German manager remains in pole position for the job, even though rumours have suggested that the move is off. Milan have made their decision and are determined to bring in the former RB Leipzig boss.
Rangnick is more than capable of leading a young squad to the Champions League, having done so last year. Leipzig have an average age of 23.5 and pay less than €70m gross in salaries. This is the model that Milan want to adopt.
