Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick, a former RB Leipzig head coach, to become interim manager until the end of the season, The Athletic reports.
Rangnick agreed to a six-month deal with Man United, meaning he will be in the Red Devil’s dugout until the end of the 2021/22 season, when he will have a further two years in a consultancy role.
The 63-year-old will leave his position as head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow to take up the role.
However, work permit reasons mean he will be unable to take charge in time for Man United’s Premier League game against Chelsea on Sunday.
Rangnick was among a number of candidates Man United recently interviewed for the managerial role following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last weekend.
Man United, however, are still looking for a permanent manager.
