Milan signed an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to become the club’s next chair for the 2020-21 season. The German, The Guardian reports, will replace Stefano Pioli, who has been in charge since last October.
The 62-year-old Rangnick has already agreed to become the club’s new manager but will also have talks with the Milan hierarchy to merge the job with that of the sporting director, a position currently held by Paolo Maldini.
As manager of Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, Rangnick made his name in Germany, and he was also the technical director for Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg. He has served as the head of sport and production at Red Bull since the summer of 2019.
The 62-year-old has been linked to several high-profile positions over the past year, including Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
He has already decided to sign a contract to take over the Rossoneri after the next season, which should run for three years.
In fact, in recent weeks, Pioli has been overseeing an improvement in results, but the club is still in seventh place, 29 points behind Juventus, who they face on Tuesday night, and a 17-point drift of Atalanta in fourth.
