RALF RANGNICK boasts an almost identical win percentage with Mauricio Pochettino as Manchester United look to bring the pair to Old Trafford.

This is how Manchester United-linked managers Ralf Rangnick and Mauricio Pochettino compare

German gaffer Ralf Rangnick, who is currently Lokomotiv Moscow’s Head of Sports and Development, has reached an agreement with United to take charge until the end of the season.

And United have now reached a deal with the Russian club to bring the 63-year-old to the Theatre of Dreams.

United also had an approach for Mauricio Pochettino, 49, knocked back by Paris Siant-Germain, but are believed to go back in for him next summer.

The ex-Tottenham boss is said to be keen on returning to the Premier League as he is unhappy living in the French capital.
