A fresh insight into the plans of those in a position of power at Manchester United to address the club’s managerial woes has been provided on Thursday.

Rangnick’s ‘revolution’?

The subject of the hotseat at Old Trafford has of course taken its place front and centre in the media chatter over the course of the last couple of weeks.

This comes amid a less-than-impressive stretch of form overseen by current boss Ralf Rangnick.

On the back of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal late in November, those in a position of power on the red half of Manchester ultimately came to the decision to hand the reins of the club to German mastermind Rangnick.

An immediate uptick in not only results, but also performances, was, in turn, widely predicted, with Rangnick held in high regard in footballing circles across the continent.

To this point, however, to say that the ‘new-look’ Red Devils have failed to live up expectations would be putting it lightly.

Despite a change in formation, and wins over the likes of Crystal Palace and Burnley, United have continued to look a team without any real identity for several weeks now.

Never more evident was this fact than just this past Monday, when the latest in a string of lacklustre performances ultimately culminated in Rangnick and co. slipping to a 1-0 defeat at home to Bruno Lage’s Wolves.

ten Hag eyed

Such woes have led to swift and altogether inevitable unrest amongst the Man United faithful, amid fresh calls for a managerial appointment with a view towards the long-term, rather than just another ‘patch job’.

And, as alluded to above, on Thursday, an insight into the plans of the Old Trafford hierarchy when it comes to precisely that has been provided.

The info comes courtesy of the reliable Henry Winter of The Times, who has revealed the identity of the ‘leading candidate’ to take up the reins in Manchester, upon Rangnick taking his place in the boardroom upon the conclusion of the campaign.

The tactician in question? Erik ten Hag.

Ajax boss ten Hag is understood to boast long-term admirers at United, with soon-to-be former Red Devils chief Ed Woodward set to be tasked with luring the Dutchman to Old Trafford, ahead of his imminent departure in the summer.
