United’s 4-1 loss to Manchester City on Sunday was only Ralf Rangnick’s second setback as interim manager.

However, they have only won eight of the German’s 18 games in charge, none of which have been in the last three.

Meanwhile, FUTBALLNEWS understands that England forward Marcus Rashford is undecided about his future at Old Trafford.

However, despite the absences of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, the 24-year-old believes his career has come to a halt and is anxious that his international aspirations may be jeopardized if the situation does not change.

Manchester United risk creating an unimaginable scenario for their next  manager

Furthermore, it’s difficult to imagine Ronaldo, 37, staying for a second season if United fails to qualify for the Champions League.

Rangnick told United’s own media outlets that his team ‘can almost not drop any more points in the last ten games if they want to finish in the top four.

With travels to Liverpool and Arsenal on the horizon, as well as home games against Tottenham on Saturday and Chelsea on May 15, obtaining maximum points will be difficult.

Manchester United understands that failing to qualify for the Champions League next season will limit its ability to attract new players – or persuade existing ones to stay, such as France midfielder Paul Pogba, who is out of contract in the summer.

Man United players want manager clarity after Man City massacre

While United’s players recognize that they bear a large part of the blame for their current predicament, they also believe that the prolonged period without a permanent manager and the lack of clarity over who will eventually succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was fired on November 21, are not helping them.

Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain and Erik ten Hag of Ajax are the frontrunners for the job. United’s football director, John Murtough, indicated last week that a “thorough investigation” was started, which is known to be progressing.

However, with both men’s contracts expiring in 2023 and vital Champions League last 16 second-leg fixtures on the horizon, direct communication at this point is unlikely.

The scenario is adding to a widespread sense of unease at Old Trafford, with a number of players dissatisfied with their lives at the club.

When their contracts expire in the summer, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, and Cavani are almost set to go. The futures of goalkeeper Dean Henderson, defender Eric Bailly, as well as Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek, who are presently on loan at Sevilla and Everton, are also in doubt.

Midfielder Scott McTominay claimed former players Roy Keane and Gary Neville’s claims that United gave up at the Etihad were “extremely upsetting” after the team’s defeat by Premier League leaders Manchester City.

McTominay told Sky Sports, “I have nothing to say regarding concerns [at the club].” “It is not my place to make any comments. We’re approaching the end of the season, and we need to qualify for the Champions League. That’s all I can think about right now.

“Whatever is going on behind the scenes has no bearing on me. I’m obviously a part of it, but you must focus on your own game. All of the events at the football club can easily divert your attention.

“It’s critical that we stick together. We can’t let anything like this demoralize us to the point where we lose faith in ourselves going into the next game.”
