New Red Devils intern boss is ready to take command of the team. A work visa issue has slowed things down, but Rangnick is ready to take on the ruthless Premier League.
Rangnick toured Old Trafford with United Football Director John Murtough this week, who gave him a full tour of the facility.
During the tour of the facilities, Rangnick met the staff and checked the pitch. In addition, it is said that he also paid a visit to the Carrington training complex.
In addition to meeting the staff and facilities during the session, Rangnick also learned about the budget he will have available for the winter market.
The Red Devils board has reportedly set a budget of £ 100million for Rangnick to reinforce the squad.
The goals of the former RB Leipzig coach are clear and include two members of his former club. Amadou Haidara and Christopher Nkunku could arrive at Old Trafford at the request of the intern boss.
In addition to the two RB Leipzig midfielders, the club’s other target is Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
Rangnick was the sporting director of RB Salzburg when Haaland was part of their ranks and was starting to emerge as a star. In fact, Rangnick was slightly involved in the deals that brought Haaland to Dortmund.
Man Unt hopes Rangnick’s close relationship with Haaland’s father will give them an advantage in the race to sign the player.
We have to wait for January to see if Rangnick’s connections pay off. For now, the club has a fairly accessible calendar for the month of December, so the German coach will have time to acclimate to the Premier League.
