Premier League side Manchester United has reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to become an interim manager.
As reported by the Athletic, Rangnick is set to leave his job as head of sports development at Lokomotiv Moscow to take up the role to become United interim coach. The Red Devils have been hunting for a coach since the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was sacked on Sunday after the defeat to Watford.
Further reports claim that Rangnick's current club will agree to release him from his contract although the Red Devils do not anticipate that as a concern.
The 63-year-old has agreed on a six-month deal until the end of the current season but will have a further two years in a consultancy role.
The German will not be available to lead the Red Devils against Chelsea over the weekend due to work permit issues.
Ralf Rangnick told Man Utd board on Monday he’ll accept this interim job only if future ‘consultancy’ with power on club choices will be included in the deal. Man Utd are prepared to accept this condition. 🔴🇩🇪 #MUFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) November 25, 2021
