There is one key figure behind the persistent speculation linking AC Milan with Ralf Rangnick, according to a report.
As Monday’s edition of Tuttosport notes (via MilanLive), Milan want to go forward under Rangnick with the presence of three solid foundations: the internationalisation of the brand, the growth of young players and a fundamentally low-cost path to return from the economic liability and get out of UEFA’s grip.
This is where the 61-year-old German coach comes as he is endorsed by Hendrik Almstadt – Ivan Gazidis’ right-hand man.
Zvonimir Boban asked for a meeting with the company, but Elliott – disappointed by the situation – decided to entrust Gazidis with a wide-ranging job. Elliott want a return to the Champions League and to stay there on a consistent basis, but also healthy financial situation that falls within UEFA standards so that it can be resold in the future.
That’s why Ragnick is the chosen man, as he was able to bring almost unknown clubs like Hoffenheim and Leipzig to the Champions League previously.
