Ralf Rangnick is studying Italian and he wants to transform Milan with some extensive club changes, according to Christian Falk from Bild.
Rangnick, the current head of international relations and scouting Red Bull confirmed that he was in talks with Milan, much to the chagrin of
Director Paolo Maldini and coach Stefano Pioli were annoyed because Rangnick, the current head of international relations and scouting Red Bull was in talks with Milan.
Falk told for MilanNews.it, “During the coronavirus emergency, the talks were suspended but the contact with Milan was really intense before that and has recently started to hot up again.”
“For a very long time Rangnick knew Ivan Gazidis, so their discussions were very frank. Rangnick’s already contacted others within the club to discuss his ideas, according to my information. I can imagine the next few weeks will see a deal reached. What is very clear is that, within the club, Rangnick wants to maintain immense influence. That explains the recent reaction from Paolo Maldini, as he can see that this arrival would limit his powers”, Falk said and added:
“Rangnick doesn’t just want to lead training or select line-ups but takes decisions about transfers and especially the scouting industry. In the medical sector, the German is also very well versed. I could also see him bringing in a team psychologist.”
