Manchester United has reached an agreement with Lokomotiv Moscow and will sign a contract with a new manager in the person of Ralf Rangnick any day – Fabrizio Romano informed.
The authorities of the “Red Devils” decided to prematurely end their cooperation with Ole Gunnar Solskjær after a series of recent failures and at the same time began a feverish search for his successor.
The team from Old Trafford said right away that they are currently only interested in hiring a temporary coach, but the number one topic in the media was that Mauricio Pochettino might leave Paris Saint-Germain for a long-term partnership with Manchester United.
It is possible that such a situation will occur, but only after the end of the ongoing games. Until then, the representatives of the English team decided to entrust their team to Ralf Rangnick.
The current head of sport and development at Lokomotiv Moscow has reached an agreement with the “Red Devils” relatively quickly. and was therefore forced to wait for the moment when the two clubs would get along.
Fabrizio Romano argues that the authorities of both teams have found a consensus that allows the 63-year-old to leave the Russian team prematurely, and thus nothing prevents the German from fulfilling his dream of taking up the challenge at the Premier League level.
The mentioned journalist emphasizes that all formalities regarding the signing of the contract with Rangnick should be closed before the end of this week, which means that the former guardian of, among others, VfB Stuttgart, Hannover 96, Schalke 04, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig will take the position of Manchester United manager after Sunday’s match with Chelsea (28 litop at 5:30 pm).
