Ralf Rangnick ‘in England to finalise Man Utd move’ as Lokomotiv Moscow chief prepares for interim manager job

RALF RANGNICK has arrived in England to finalise his move to Manchester United, according to reports.

It emerged yesterday that the German is set to be appointed Red Devils interim manager until the end of the season.

Ralf Rangnick is set to take charge at Man United

And according to reports in Russia, Rangnick has already arrived on these shores ahead of taking charge.

Championat claim that, in addition to working as interim boss, Rangnick will also take on a consultancy role at Man United.

The 63-year-old is set to leave his current job at Lokomotiv Moscow, having only signed a three-year deal back in July.

Rangnick’s United switch is dependent on the Russian side allowing him to leave his role as head of sports and development.

Reports of him having already arrived in England would suggest that permission won’t be a problem.

The Red Devils have been unable to secure a work permit in time for Rangnick to take charge of Sunday’s trip to Chelsea.


This means that Michael Carrick will still be in the dugout at Stamford Bridge.

As a pioneer of gegenpressing in Germany, Rangnick arrives with a strong reputation.

The likes of Thomas Tuchel, Jurgen Klopp and Julian Nagelsmann are all said to have been heavily influenced by his methods.

In other roles behind the scenes, Rangnick has also shown off a talent for spotting future stars, with Erling Haaland among his greatest finds.

He could bring his trademark 4-2-2-2 formation to Old Trafford, as he looks to get his disjointed team organised.
