Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure following a run of poor results which has seen fans and pundits call for his sack.

According to Bild journalist Christian Falk via Daily Star, German tactician Ralf Rangnick is interested in taking over from Solskjaer at Manchester United, though he has one condition.

It is understood that Rangnick, if given the job, would expect to be given a position in the club’s hierarchy after his spell in charge concludes.

Rangnick is no stranger to the role, having overseen the success of RB Leipzig at boardroom level until his resignation in 2020.

The 63-year-old is currently the head of sports development at Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel were greatly influenced by Rangnick.

Meanwhile, Rangnick explained in 2019 where Manchester United have gone wrong as a club.

He told The Times: “Since Sir Alex [Ferguson] left they were underperforming.

“They haven’t won the title since he left. At any club, if you cannot get the right players, then you should at least not sign the wrong ones.

“You are in trouble if you do that in one or two or three consecutive transfer windows.

“Club building is about building the right squad by transferring the right players away and having more than 50 per cent success rate of bringing in the right players.

“Then you must have the best possible coaches to develop these players.”
