Former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick has reportedly been interested in joining Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is relieved of his duties as per the report from Sports Bild journalist Christian Falk

The Red Devils have displayed a shambolic performance against the city rival Manchester City at Old Trafford. The Norwegian manager went with the 5-3-2 formation on Saturday afternoon and has now opted to go with this system in the past three games in a row and apart from against Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham Hotspur, the Red Devils have struggled in this system. 

Solskjaer’s side found themselves trailing early into the game from an unfortunate own goal by Eric Bailly and late in the first half with the help of United’s lethargic defending Bernardo Silva doubled the margin for the Citizens. 

In the second half, the Red Devils displayed an even more pathetic display as they could not manage to register a single shot on target. On the other hand, Pep Guardiola’s side turn the second 45-minute into a passing session as they killed the game by keeping the possession.

Following an annihilating 2-0 defeat against Manchester City, Solskjaer’s job is under threat and the fans are demanding a change. The Red Devils have now drifted out of the title race as they are currently nine points behind the leader Chelsea and might fall to seventh at the end of this week. 

Rangnick wants to replace Solskjaer at Manchester United 

According to the report from Falk, Ralf Rangnick is interested in replacing Solskjaer at Manchester United. However, given the German hasn’t had any experience in managing an elite club, there is a question mark about whether he could live up to the expectations at Old Trafford. 

The former Leipzig manager’s playing style is mentioned as the inspiration of two elite German managers Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp. So, it would be interesting to see how the 63-year-old can perform at a big club if the Red Devils hierarchy appoint the German. 

Meanwhile, having suffered two agonizing defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City at Old Trafford, there is no way back for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils haven’t shown any signs of improvement so far this season, so sacking the manager would be a better decision for the Old Trafford hierarchy.
