Red Bull chief Ralf Rangnick is a step closer to joining AC Milan.
Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, of Sky Italia, is reporting an agreement could be struck this week.
However, there remains confusion over what role Rangnick will take up.
The former Hoffenheim coach has been linked with Stefano Pioli's job, though could also arrive as technical director.
Either way, director Paolo Maldini is expected to be squeezed out of the club.
