Rangnick reveals transfer strategy talks with Man Utd board

Manchester United caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick says transfer talks have been held with the board.

Rangnick excelled as director of football for the Red Bull network of clubs and has had a successful recruitment strategy wherever he has been.

As a manager at United he has struggled, with just 11 wins in his 28 games, but he has observed a squad built without a clear philosophy in mind.

That is expected to change with the arrival of Erik ten Hag and Rangnick believes the club are ready to change their recruitment structure.

"For me it's obvious it should and will happen and also very positive from all the conversations I've had that the board is willing to do that," he said.

"There will be changes [this summer], obviously there will be players who will be leaving because their contracts have expired so there will be space for new players. We also spoke about the last transfer window in January where the board, and we, decided not to sign any players so this is different now.

"In this window there will be some new players, he [Ten Hag] will also have some influence on which kind of player he wants and yeah, that will happen in this window and hopefully the next two windows and I think it's obvious to everybody for the owners, the board and every supporter we need to increase and raise the level of quality within the squad."
