Man Utd chiefs convinced Rangnick can help win Haaland race

Manchester United chiefs believe incoming caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick can help in negotiations with Erling Haaland.

Borussia Dortmund's Norwegian star is wanted by a number of Europe's top clubs, including Manchester City, Liverpool, ­Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The Sun says City were in pole position as Haaland's dad Alfie played there and Real have made a move.

But new United interim boss Rangnick oversaw Haaland's move from Molde to Salzburg two years ago when he was director of football for the Austrian side.

United believe that link will enable them to sign Europe's hottest property next summer when he has a £64million release clause.

Haaland's move to Salzburg rocketed the now 21-year-old into the limelight and Dortmund snapped him up a year later.

United had hoped former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be a key factor in any deal, having given him his first big break at Molde.

But the arrival of Rangnick could be even more decisive — especially with Solskjaer also sure to sing the praises of a move to Old Trafford.
