Man Utd linked with RB Leipzig star as Rangnick appointment edges closer

Ralf Rangnick and RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara could be set for a reunion at Manchester United, according to reports.

Rangnick is expected to be appointed as United’s new manager, having agreed to take over from Michael Carrick until the end of the season. United are waiting for his work permit to be accepted before making an official announcement.

He will look to revive their season before taking up a consultancy role in the summer, which will see him involved in the search for a permanent manager.

Man Utd might finally be leaving the past where it belongs

One area which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to address during his United tenure was the midfield, with Fred and Scott McTominay unable to compete with the league’s best in the middle of the park.

Rangnick will have to find a solution if he is to turn United’s season around, which may see him call upon his contacts in Germany.

According to the Mirror, Haidara is one option for the German, who was influential in the 23-year-old’s transfer from RB Salzburg to Leipzig in 2019.

Since making the switch, Haidara has become a key player for the Bundesliga outfit, making 31 appearances last season and 16 this campaign. He has a soft spot for United, too, telling Bild in 2019: “I like Manchester United very much and watch as many games as possible. I dream of playing there.”


If United do end up pursuing the Mali international, they will have to fend off Newcastle United for his services.

Eddie Howe is seeking midfield reinforcements as he looks to guide the Magpies out of the relegation zone, with Haidara thought to be high up on his shortlist.

Newcastle tracked Haidara over the summer but were put off by his £33m release clause, which they felt overvalued him.

It’s a different story now, though, with the PIF ready to spend big following their controversial takeover.

Howe, speaking after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal, is confident Newcastle can turn things around: “I’m a positive guy,” he said. “I’ve seen enough from the two games to see we can compete.

“A neutral watching today wouldn’t think we were in the position we were in. It’s up to us to get the results we need.”
