Manchester United need to acquire three new strikers this summer, according to Ralf Rangnick, who also claims Cristiano Ronaldo’s future will be decided by incoming manager Erik ten Hag. Last month, United announced Ten Hag as their new permanent manager, with the Ajax head coach scheduled to take over from interim boss Rangnick at the end of the season.
Ten Hag will have a number of issues to address when he comes to Old Trafford, following a disappointing season that seems to have put them out of the Champions League next season. Rangnick, who will join the Red Devils as a consultant this summer, is certain that his successor will soon raise United off the table.
I’m confident that with a good recruitment process and bringing in the proper players, the supporters and media will be able to see a better team and, hopefully, a better league position. ‘
There are several good examples in the league, including Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool, Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Manchester City, and Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Chelsea-yes, he arrived in the middle of the season and inherited a top-quality squad, but you still have to win the Champions League. ‘
It shouldn’t take long if you know what you’re looking for and the profiles of the many positions you require. One of the most difficult decisions Ten Hag will have to make concerns Ronaldo, whose future has been the subject of much conjecture in recent months.
Many believe that when he is in the side, United is not as hard-working off the ball, which could be a problem for the incoming manager, given his style of pressing from the front.
Rangnick stated when asked about the 37-year-future. He’s shown that he can still be an important member of this squad, but it’s clear that they need more strikers. ‘ According to Rangnick, United have been linked with moves for Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, among others.
It’s very evident that there will be two or three new strikers next season. When Ronaldo and Raphael Varane joined last summer, United was tipped to be championship contenders, but a poor start to the season cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job.
Rangnick has been unable to turn the club’s fortunes around since taking over, and with only 15 victories in 35 league games, United is on the verge of missing out on a spot in the top four.
The interim management recognizes that major adjustments are required this summer, conceding that “small tweaks” will not suffice.’ Regardless of whose club you belong to, having a concept is always useful and important, “he remarked.
You have to know how you want to play and what type of profiles we need, because if you don’t, you’ll be hunting for a needle in a haystack all the time.’ When I mentioned “open heart surgery,” I meant exactly that. Minor repairs and amendments, in my opinion, are insufficient.
I believe it is critical to consider the big picture before bringing in the best potential players.'” They should also mesh well together; it’s not just about bringing in certain players for defense, midfield, and up forward; it’s also about getting to know the players’ personalities and ensuring that they are truly compatible with the demands of such a large club. ‘
