Ralf Rangnick’s new role with Austria national football team could be a big boost for Manchester United’s incoming boss Erik ten Hag in securing a transfer target in the summer. 

The Red Devils made it official that the German tactician will become the new manager of Das Team and he will continue his consultancy role at the Old Trafford stadium simultaneously. 

Meanwhile, the record Premier League champions will be outsetting a new chapter under the Ajax boss Erik ten Hag from next season and he will be eyeing a few new signings during the summer transfer window. 

Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer was previously mentioned as the target for Manchester United in order to resolve their midfield issues, given Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba are set to leave the club at the end of this season. 

The report in Mirror is claiming that Rangnick’s new role with Austria national football team will help Manchester United in finalizing a deal for the midfielder who will reunite with the German boss on national duty in the summer. 

The 24-years-old joined Leipzig back in 2017 when Rangnick was the sporting director of the club. So, they already know each other. 

The report further claims that the midfielder – who is valued at around £23 million – will be a feasible solution for Manchester United as the Austrian’s current contract will expire at the end of next season. 

Our View:

Manchester United need reinforcements in the midfield department and signing Konrad Laimer could be a very good addition for the Red Devils. However, any new signings should be granted by the new manager Erik ten Hag. 

The 24-years-old can play anywhere across the midfield position. So, his versatility could be an asset for the new manager. Meanwhile, the Austrian can also play at fullback. 

A flurry of players are expected to leave the club in the summer. So, the Red Devils need a squad overhaul. However, keeping the club’s hierarchy’s previous performance in mind, they might struggle to address all the issues in one transfer window. 

But, following the resignation of chief transfer negotiator Matt Judge, the Old Trafford faithful could be optimistic about their future from next season onwards.
