The latest transfer rumors surrounding Manchester United are updated in real time. Ten Hag discusses the rumors surrounding United’s pursuit of a ‘world-class’ signing.
On Sunday, Manchester United will face Manchester City in a tense Manchester derby matchup.
As a result of their goalless draw against Watford last weekend, United are still in the hunt for a top-four finish and will be keen to avoid any further slip-ups. With Liverpool breathing down their necks, the pressure has also mounted on league leaders Manchester City, who have seen their lead at the top of the table reduced.
With attention diverted away from their pre-season training and preparations for the trip to the Etihad, Manchester United’s search for a new manager continues to dominate headlines, with a new name being linked as the club consider their next permanent manager.
While uncertainty surrounds Carlo Ancelotti’s future at Real Madrid, he has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the job.
In a statement, Ralf Rangnick confirmed that United will be looking for a centre-forward this summer, with Victor Osimhen being linked with the club.
Manchester United and Premier League rivals Liverpool could find themselves in a ‘bidding war’ for the signature of Sevilla defender Joules Kounde this summer, with the winner likely to be Manchester United.
Reports from Fichajes claim that Manchester United and Liverpool are among the clubs interested in signing the Frenchman, along with Chelsea, Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
Sevilla are reportedly willing to pay £68million for the center-back.
Count on Ralf Rangnick to have spent his rare midweek off at Carrington meticulously developing a game plan for Manchester United’s trip to the Etihad Stadium this weekend, as he did last season.
In terms of United’s ability to carry out the plan, we’re not so sure about that.
Rangnick has already spoken about how his team can become disengaged from their game plan when things go against them, and no matter how effective their game plan is, it’s highly unlikely that everything will go their way against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
Despite strong speculation linking him to Manchester United, Erik ten Hag has insisted he has “no thoughts on the future.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s interim successor, Ralf Rangnick, was appointed to the position in November, and the German will take over as permanent head coach at the end of the season.
Ten Hag is a candidate for the position of permanent manager at Manchester United, which is currently open for applications.
In the wake of Harry Maguire’s recent struggles, Manchester United are looking to sign a ‘world-class’ centre-back in the summer transfer window.
As reported by the Mail, Manchester United are concerned about Maguire’s ability to remain a first-team regular in the coming season.
The Reds signed Raphael Varane as a replacement for Harry Maguire in the summer of 2016, but the latter has endured a season of consistent struggles.
At Pep Guardiola’s press conference later today, expect a predictable line of questioning, and for good reason.
Manchester United travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend, and they are well aware that their chances of pulling off another upset at the stadium will be heavily reliant on the performance of Jadon Sancho.
Whenever Guardiola hears the inevitable namedrop, his eyes will most likely roll back into his cranial cavity. The well-documented story of Sancho, who was sold for £8million at the age of 17 after turning down a new contract at Manchester City, is an example of this.
By far the most popular candidate to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United’s head coach is Mauricio Pochettino.
He is reportedly taking English lessons and is the second-most popular candidate for the position.
