Man Utd close to appointing Rangnick as interim manager

Ralf Rangnick is close to finalising a deal to become Manchester United interim manager until the end of the season.

Discussions are ongoing over a deal that would also see Rangnick remain at the club for two years beyond the end of the season in a consultancy role.

Rangnick, 63, is one of the most respected names in German football and is currently manager of sports and development for Lokomotiv Moscow.

United remain in talks with the Russian club over an agreement to release him.

As it stands, Michael Carrick is still expected to be in charge for Sunday’s Premier League game at Chelsea.

Carrick has been placed in temporary charge while United conduct a thorough process to appoint an interim boss following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week.

Former Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde and former Lyon head coach Rudi Garcia had also been considered for the interim role.

United are planning to make a permanent appointment at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is their first choice, with Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag also in their thinking.
