Ralf Rangnick is “pushing” Manchester United to sign Erling Haaland, even though they shouldn’t need to be pushed.
We know that every big club will do all they can to land the Norwegian striker, when he decides to leave Borussia Dortmund, but a maximum 4 or 5 clubs are in the frame to realistically sign Haaland. Mino Raiola has already suggested that United are in the race for his signature but money talks.
United need to start being proactive in their search for new signings and I’m sure Rangnick will be quick to spread his knowledge on how the football club should operate. This will also be a challenge for the German because he has never worked for a club like United before.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Rangnick is pushing United to sign the Dortmund striker after speaking to the player’s father, Alf-Inge, about the possibility of his son moving to Old Trafford next year.
The report states: “United do not believe the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who managed Haaland at Molde, would hamper their chances of signing Haaland. Sources say Solskjaer’s relationship with Haaland was not as warm following the collapse of his prospective move to United in December 2019.”
However, Rangnick also has history with Haaland. He was Red Bull sporting director and had an involvement in the striker’s move to Red Bull Salzburg from Molde in 2018.
This is the world’s most wanted centre-forward so it’s obvious that Rangnick would want Haaland at United in the future. It wouldn’t be a bad move since Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani are both likely to leave the club before next season kicks off.
