Having previously been in charge of Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig, Rangnick is currently in his first season working behind the scenes at Red Bull.
However, according to L'Equipe, the 61-year-old is in line to replace Stefano Pioli in the San Siro dugout at the end of the season.
The alleged development comes despite Pioli recording nine wins and six draws from his 20 games in charge of the Serie A giants.
The report adds that Rangnick will be provided with full control of transfers should he take up the position in the summer. body check tags ::
