Manchester United players and interim manager, Ralf Rangnick are currently in disagreement over who becomes the club’s next permanent manager.
Rangnick when appointed, was given the privilege to contribute to the hiring of a new manager. And with this in view, the German wants Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as the ideal candidate to succeed him while the players are pushing for Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
Rangnick is expected to leave Old Trafford or take up another position once his time at the helm comes to an end.
United chiefs are confident they can prise Pochettino away from PSG at the end of the season.
The Sun now reports that United players would fully support that move and now new chief executive Richard Arnold is in place they will intensify their pursuit of the Argentine.
After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last November, Manchester United were linked with a move for Pochettino but could not persuade PSG to do business.
Rangnick, who will move into a consultancy role at the end of the campaign, is believed to favor a move for ten Hag.
The Dutchman matches United’s key criteria for their next manager by blooding youth, playing attractive football, and regularly challenging for silverware.
Having spent several months with the squad, Rangnick will be in a strong position to voice his opinion on what type of manager the club need going forward but that could clash with what United’s players want.
