Man Utd aim to beat Chelsea for signing a La Liga star and are preparing a monstrous offer, according to reports.
The Red Devils are going through a turbulent period, having sacked club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning. Michael Carrick has been installed as interim boss while an interim manager is found.
It looks like ex-RB Leipzig man Ralf Rangnick will take over. athleticism report that the 63-year-old is expected to be offered a six-month contract, although he was hoping for a long-term stay.
As a result, the club leaders gave him the opportunity to become a consultant for two years after his passage in the canoe was completed.
Attention will then turn to his replacement in the summer. Mauricio Pochettino is the most likely man for the job, as reports suggest he has reservations about his longevity at Paris Saint-Germain.
The new manager will undoubtedly change Man Utd’s transfer plans. Despite this, it is clear that some positions are in desperate need of improvement.
The central midfielder is one example. The pairing of Fred and Scott McTominay can be missing in big games. Franck Kessie and Wilfred Ndidi are two potential solutions.
Another awkward position was the right-back, as Aaron Wan Bissaka lacks an attacking threat. England international Kieran Trippier is a target, and the 31-year-old is also keen on a return to the Premier League.
The new boss will also have to deal with the goalkeeper situation. Dean Henderson failed to usurp David de Gea in net but still wants consistent playing time.
Caught Offside, citing reports from the Spanish press, claim that Man Utd could get rid of the two stars by bringing in Jan Oblak from Atletico.
The shooter is up for grabs because he wants to leave the Wanda Metropolitano in search of a new challenge. His ultimate goal is to win the Champions League, which he deems more accessible to Man Utd or Chelsea.
Man Utd are looking to steal a march on their Premier League rivals by preparing a huge offer. They are set to part ways with € 80million for the Slovenia international, who has kept six clean sheets in 18 appearances this season.
Chelsea may not be willing to pay that much due to Edouard Mendy’s brilliant form.

Ferdinand’s surprise verdict on Man Utd goal
Meanwhile, former Man Utd defender Rio Ferdinand thinks Erling Haaland should snub Man City and United.
He reckons the Norwegian striker would be more effective under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. “I think it suits other teams better [than Man City], Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
“If he goes to Liverpool, it’s a devastating trio. I don’t think it’s that hard for him to adjust if he goes to Liverpool. It’s a different system.
Haaland has a release clause in the range of £ 64-68million which activates in June. However, a deal can cost over £ 250million due to Mino Raiola’s agent fees.
