Once his first mission is done, Ralph Rangnick already knows he has to finish his job to get the Manchester United club back on its feet. As a reminder, the former Lokomotiv Moscow sports director plans to coach the Red Devils first team until the end of the season, before moving on to a mentor position at the club. The files to be processed at the desk of the former manager of Leipzig, starting with the structure of the recruitment unit, should not disappear.

Indeed, upon his arrival at the club, ESPN reports that Rangnik was taken by surprise when United scouts informed him that France international Nkunku was not on the list of potential targets. Exchanges between Rangnik and club scouts, via YouTube channel Stratford Paddock, revealed that United were not actively interested in the 24-year-old midfielder and had no scouting reports as he was not on the players’ shortlist.

The Nkunku Show continues

Hard to hear for the ears of such a talent scout. For the architect of the Red Bull Empire, a supporter of aggressive and fast football that does not let the opponent breathe, it is difficult to imagine that the best player of his former club, which flourished in this style of play, does not Spark the slightest interest in Manchester United. New-International Christopher Nkunku has scored 28 goals in all competitions this season (and made 18 assists!), netting seven times in the Champions League group stage, including a hat-trick in their loss to Manchester City.

One goal, one assist against Hoffenheim last weekend: Former Parisian Nkunku continued his performance in the league last weekend, now in the Bundesliga this season with 17 goals and 13 assists. Nkunku left his training club PSG for Germany in 2019 and has been wearing the France team jersey ever since. He made his debut for the Blues last month. The news has come that Manchester United is going through a difficult period. The poor results strain a critical locker room that seems to be torn over the question of the next coach. On top of that, the Red Devils are on the wrong track to grab the Top 4, which is synonymous with the Champions League next season.
