According to Sky Sport Deutschland, Ralf Rangnick has so far turned down an offer to become the new Milan coach and director of sport.
Sacked director Zvonimir Boban has said that CEO Ivan Gazidis contacted Rangnick to secure a deal in December, while President Paolo Scaroni only confirmed “preliminary” talks with the German.
Now the latest report from Sky in Germany claim that the reason Milan haven’t secured Rangnick for next season yet is that he turned them down.
It’s suggested he was concerned at the Financial Fair Play situation, which forced the Rossoneri to pull out of the Europa League this term, while he also wants to be assured carte blanche when it comes to transfers and his style of football.
Stefano Pioli is the current coach and insisted he will continue to give his all for the club as long as he is in the job, seeming to acknowledge his future has already been decided.
