Rangnick outlines the players he asked Manchester United to sign.
Former Manchester United interim coach, Ralf Rangnick, has listed the six players he asked the club to sign in the January transfer window.
In November 2021, Rangnick was appointed as Man United’s interim manager after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired. The German did not make any signings while in charge of Man United.
The German stated how he suggested the club’s hierarchy target six players in January: Josko Gvardiol, Christopher Nkunku, Alvaro Morata, Luis Diaz, Dusan Vlahovic, and Erling Haaland.

“There was no such dossier, and it was never wanted by the club,” Rangnick told BILD.
“But even without such a script, it was clear to everyone that there was a need in many areas.
“That is why we were already discussing players like Josko Gvardiol and Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig. Those were names that were realistic. We also talked about Alvaro Morata, Luis Diaz, Dusan Vlahovic and, as I said, Haaland when they were still on the market. But the club decided at that time to rebuild the team under the new coach.”
