Ralf Rangnick is on his way to England, but he will NOT be arriving at St James’ Park.
As revealed by The Athletic, Man Utd have reached an agreement to make the 63-year-old their interim manager until the end of the season.
David Ornstein’s ‘exclusive’ reveals that he will remain at Old Trafford in a consultancy role for the following two years, suggesting the Red Devil’s will appoint a new long term manager next summer.
So, the former RB Leipzig supreme won’t become our new sporting director, leaving the likes of Michael Emenalo, Ramon Planes and Michael Edwards in the running.
The Athletic’s George Caulkin confirmed our interest in Rangnick – currently at Lokomotiv Moscow – last month, however it seems he’ll be heading to Manchester, not Newcastle.
