Meeting with club officials, Rangnick offers another new name for MU's target

MDP Live - Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick met with the club's top brass earlier this month. Rangnick explained a lot about the condition of the players of this Premier League club.

During the meeting, Rangnick advised United to sign Wolves defender Max Kilman, who has been in good form for the Black Country side this season.

Rangnick has actually mentioned a number of players the club should be targeting during the current transfer window. RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara's name is among them.

New chief executive Richard Arnold, who was present at the meeting, said he remains to see the submissions, and will immediately respond to Rangnick's comments.

Previously, Rangnick made a surprising statement saying that captain Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were not good enough to play.


During his presentation Rangnick did expose the team's defensive weaknesses and recommended that major changes were needed.

Rangnick insists all three players need to be replaced. MU said the German coach needed to change.


Previously, it was reported that United would offer four players as consideration for a move for midfielder Jude Bellingham. This Premier League club needs a new player in this position.

The Red Devils are looking for reinforcements in midfield, as Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are all out of contract in the summer.


According to the Daily Mirror, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and Eric Bailly are the three players United are ready to offer in exchange for Bellingham.

These three players have now been thrown from the first team. Martial even wants to leave Old Trafford this month or in the summer.


Rangnick took the lead at Old Trafford in November following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 63-year-old will oversee the team until the end of the season before taking on a consultant role for the next two years.

Part of his focus in the coming years will be based on talent assessment and identification. And he has properly informed the club's top brass about the players the club already has.

The mess at Manchester United feels toxic right now

MDP Live - Manchester United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager on November 21, 2021. However, that decision has not made the Red Devils' condition much better.

United started 2022 with disappointing results, losing 0-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford. It was Cristiano Ronaldo's sixth defeat this season, but the first under interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The result left the Red Devils languishing in seventh place in the Premier League standings with 31 points from 19 matches. MU is 22 points behind city rivals who lead the standings, Manchester City.

Not only that, this condition was also followed by reports of tension in the Man Utd dressing room. Rumors of several key players wanting to leave, including Cristiano Ronaldo, are circulating.

Paul Scholes Komentar Comments

The Manchester United situation got the attention of Paul Scholes. Speaking to Webby and O'Neill's YouTube channels, he said: "The club feels a mess from a player, staff and manager perspective. Who wants to come into this club? It feels like a proper mess. It does feel toxic."

Furthermore, the former MU midfielder also questioned the quality of a number of players. "It has to get to a point where you think, 'Are these players good enough?' said Scholes.

"We know Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Nemanja Matic have great experience and won trophies. However, the rest of the squad haven't proven themselves good enough to win anything."

Maguire, Rashford, and Lindelof

Speaking of Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof, Scholes said: "Some of these players have a lot of games now. Marcus Rashford, he has a lot of games, will we see these players reach their potential? Will they be good enough to win trophies? ? Maguire, is he good enough? Lindelof, is he good enough?"

Scholes, who won 11 Premier League trophies with United added: "We keep saying how good they are, but they fail to produce what is needed on the pitch."

Not Pochettino, Rangnick Finds The Right Successor At Manchester United

MDP Live - Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has reportedly found a person who is considered worthy of being his successor. Rangnick has also recommended to MU to use the coach of his choice.

Rangnick will only manage Manchester United until the end of this season. Starting the 2022/2023 season, Manchester United will use a permanent coach. Until now, MU is still hunting for a permanent coach for next season.

Initially, Paris Sait Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino was the favorite to become Manchester United's permanent coach starting next season. MU has long had a crush on the Argentinian man.

But Rangnick claimed Le Parisien had a different choice from the MU management. Rangnick reportedly prefers Erik ten Hag as his successor.

Ralf Rangnick has suggested to MU officials to prefer Ten Hag over Pochettino. Rangnick is more confident in Ten Hag's performance.


Ten Hag was a huge success at Ajax Amsterdam. Since taking charge in December 2017, Ten Hag has won two Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cups.

Not only the title, the Dutchman can also present attractive games and attract young players.


MU's opportunity to get the Ten Hag is quite open. Ten Hag's contract with Ajax will expire in June 2023. The 51-year-old man is also reportedly ready to try a new challenge.

MU negotiations with Ajax will not be too difficult. The reason is that Ajax officials are Edwin van der Sar who is none other than the former goalkeeper of the Red Devils.

Rangnick wants the squad to be stronger, this is the main requirement for new MU players

MDP Live - Manchester United or MU currently has a swell squad. However, the Premier League club will remain in the market looking for a new midfielder.

United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is only interested in signing high-quality players for his team if they decide to sign in the January transfer window.

Rangnick has used 23 senior players in his first two games as coach. And, United still have Raphael Varane, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial who have just returned from injury.

MU failed to trim their squad that swelled in the summer. But now Pogba, Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are out of contract at the end of the season and Martial's agent says the Frenchman wants to leave next month.

United, on the other hand, are aiming to sign a midfielder next year, having explored options in the summer. However, they still emphasize spending because of the size of the squad.

"My opinion on winter transfers is very clear," Rangnick said. "It needs to be a player who improves quality, who improves the team to be better, needs to be a player of high quality, no matter what area of ​​the pitch.

"If it's a midfielder or whatever it is, it needs to be a player that really helps us to get better."

"And on the other hand if we want him in the summer, he should also be an available player for similar conditions in the winter, then maybe it makes sense to discuss it and think about it. But only then, if the two things come together."

Winner Mental

"It needs the right mentality, not just the right quality. We also need, especially for this competitive league, to have the best mentality."

"They have to be mature enough, have a winning mentality. For me, mentality is even more important than any league in the world."

5 Goals

Previously, Rangnick is now trying to change the MU squad by targeting a number of big players. According to The Athletic, the 63-year-old tactician has a list of five players to sign for the summer of 2022.

The five players are Erling Haaland, Kieran Trippier, Jude Bellingham, Tyler Adams, and Declan Rice. Rangnick could choose these five players to improve several positions in the Man Utd squad.

Attack Line

One of the positions that Ralf Rangnick needs to strengthen is the attack line. Because, the Red Devils will lose two of their attackers, namely Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani in the upcoming transfer window.

The 20-time Premier League champions have been linked with Erling Haaland. However, the Norwegian striker is one of the most sought-after players, such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid.
