With several games left to complete the Serie A season and with coach Pioli working on trying to reach a European spot, Milan are focused on planning the future beyond the current campaign, a future that could see Ralf Rangnick in charge at the Rossoneri.
In the past few days, Milan's CEO Ivan Gazidis held another meeting with the German coach, Sky Sport Italy reports, following the discussions that the parties, including Singer, had already held in December at the Hilton Hotel in Milan. The German is edging closer to being appointed at the Italian club as the parties have already reached an agreement.
The startegies, as well as the agreement, will be confirmed and become official only when Milan will reach their objective for the season, in order to protect Pioli's work and keep the environment serene for the remainder of the campaign.
However, it appears evident that Ralf Rangnick will be Milan's coach next season (the Rossoneri havedifinitively put aside the idea of evaluating the profiles of other German coaches) and will be responsible for the budget and the transfers, both incomings and outgoings. Rangnick's staff will be formed by Italian coaches and some of the staff already at the club like Moncada and Hendrik Almstadt.
