Ralf Rangnick makes a U-turn after being snubbed by Chelsea ten months ago due to a Man Utd negotiating tactic.
Manchester United appears to have persuaded Ralf Rangnick to accept an interim role.
Manchester United appears to have succeeded where Chelsea failed in convincing Ralf Rangnick to accept the role of interim manager.
The Blues reportedly made a move for Thomas Tuchel before his appointment at the start of the year, but he was not interested in their short-term offer.
Michael Carrick’s tenure as caretaker manager of the Red Devils could be coming to an end soon.
His first game against Villarreal was largely successful, with a 2-0 win securing Champions League knockout qualification, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement could be on the way soon.
Rangnick has reportedly agreed to a six-month interim contract with United, which will keep him at the club until the end of the season.
Given that the 63-year-old publicly turned down a similar approach 10 months ago, onlookers at Stamford Bridge may be perplexed.
In an Instagram post, Eric Cantona declares himself the “new manager of Manchester United.”
“I’m not an interim coach,” Rangnick said in the aftermath, according to Fabrizio Romano.
You’d be known as the four-month manager among the media and players.”
The United board of directors, on the other hand, persuaded him to retract his remarks by offering him something that the Blues couldn’t.
After his touchline duties conclude at the end of this season, his alleged contract with the Red Devils includes a two-year consultancy role.
Romano claims that such a role swayed the German, with a stake in the club’s redevelopment set to fall into his hands.

Rangnick has experience as a manager as well as in behind-the-scenes roles, having served in various capacities at various clubs over the last 20 years.
He recently joined Lokomotiv Moscow as Head of Sports and Development, and the Russian club is expected to approve his move to Old Trafford.
Rangnick will have a mouthwatering squad at his disposal to slingshot the Red Devils back up the table, despite the fact that he will only be in charge for about six months.
