Gianluca di Marzio is reporting that AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis met with prospective coach Ralf Rangnick again in the past weeks and that the German manager is edging closer to being appointed as the next manager. The parties reportedly have reached an agreement but this will only be announced at the end of the current campaign so as to not interfere with Stefano Pioli's work. The coach will reportedly have an Italian staff and will retain the likes of Geoffrey Moncada and Henrik Almstadt.
