Manchester United has reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to take over as the new interim manager.
Rangnick will be taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was relieved of his position following a humbling 4-1 defeat by Watford, at Vicarage Road, with the club being in an unfamiliar eighth position in the league table.
The German had been part of a short-list of experienced managers inclusive of (current PSG manager) Mauricio Pochettino, (former Barcelona coach) Ernesto Valverde. Rudi Garcia, Lucien Favre, marked to take over at Carrington Road.
An agreement has been said to be reached with Rangnick, which will see him take up the interim role and remain at the club for two years beyond the end of the season on a consultancy basis.
Despite this deal, Michael Carrick is still expected to be in charge for Sunday’s Premier League clash against in-form Chelsea.
Carrick has been placed on a temporary charge of United after the axing of the Norwegian legend.
