As per reports from American magazine and multi-platform publisher “The Atlantic”, English football club Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to take over as their interim manager.
The German is set to ink a six-month contract with the Red Devils. Manchester United have already relieved their manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer of his duties on Sunday, following the side’s 4-1 defeat to Watford.
The Red Devils are under the supervision of Michael Carrick as their caretaker manager, but the club have been on the hunt for an interim manager to lead the team until the end of the season.
The Old Trafford based club is claimed to have held talks with a number of coaches for the interim manager role. Lucien Favre, Ernesto Valverde and Rudi Garcia have all been linked with Manchester United in recent days. However, it has emerged that Manchester United have reached an agreement with Rangnick over the interim manager’s job.
Rangnick has managed German clubs like RB Leipzig and Schalke, and will lead Manchester United until the end of the season. Although the task of handling and bringing Manchester United back to consistency is a mammoth task as the club has been struggling to find the right rhythm. Even after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the club is so far unable to make its claim among the Premier League title contenders.
As per reports, the 63-year-old will remain at Old Trafford in a consultancy role for another two years. But also as per the reports of The Atlantic, the German will not be available for the game against Chelsea on Sunday, 28th of November, as both Manchester United and Rangnick are waiting for the work permit process to be over for the German. The Red Devils will be keen to iron out the finer details at the earliest as they prepare for a new chapter.
