It is still unknown when football will resume, but Milan (Ivan Gazidis) are thinking about the next season and Stefano Pioli is not expected to stay.
It’s been over a month since Milan were last on the pitch, as the Coronavirus has changed the lives of people all over the world, putting a stop to Italian football among many other things.
It is still unclear when exactly the season will resume – if at all – but for the Rossoneri the mind is already on 2020/2021, as this campaign has been another one full of disappointments and failures.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, the recent situation contributes to the fact that it’s unlikely to see Stefano Pioli managing the squad in the next year. The name of Ralf Rangnick is always on the list of CEO Ivan Gazidis and over the last few days there have been contacts via conference calls.
The main obstacle, when it comes to Rangnick, who once seemed like a closed deal, is the transfer budget that will be made available to him. The German coach demands control and responsibility and would like to be able to build a team suited for him. Di Marzio claims that a direct meeting between the parties will be essential to try and detail the details of an agreement.
Rangnick is not the only candidate for the Milan bench and the management in the last few days has contacted the entourage of Marcelino. The Spanish coach was mentioned as an option after Marco Giampaolo was sacked but he decided to not take the offer of Milan as he had recently left Valencia.
Di Marzio also adds that Unai Emery, the 48-year-old Spanish coach who was sacked from Arsenal this season, is another profile that is on the list of Gazidis.
