TRANSFER: Ralf Rangnick Set To Land Erling Haaland To Man United—Taking advantage of his relationship with the striker’s father and agent, Alf-Inge, New Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick is planning to revolutionise the club’s attack by bringing in Erling Haaland, Timo Werner and RB Leipzig pair Christopher Nkunku and Amadou Haidara, according to reports.
Recall, Rangnick was announced as the Red Devils’ new temporary coach on Monday until the end of the season, before he takes a two-year consultancy role at Old Trafford. The 63-year-old arrived at Old Trafford on Wednesday and looked around the club’s facilities.
The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the German is not only known for his excellent coaching through an attractive style of play but also has experience of handling the transfer market through his sporting director roles at RB Leipzig, RB Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow.
And according to German news outlet BILD, Rangnick will make an attempt to bring Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland to Old Trafford as the German knows his father and agent, Alf-Inge, well.
Rangnick was in a sporting director role at Salzburg when Haaland rose to prominence in Austria during the winter of 2019, as the Norwegian scored 28 goals in 22 games before sealing a £18million move to Dortmund at the start of 2020.
Haaland scored 41 goals in 41 games for the Bundesliga club last season and the 21-year-old has backed that up with 14 goals in 11 games so far this term.
