The January transfer window ushers a period of transformation at Manchester United as Ralf Rangnick stamps his authority on the squad.
Wantaway forward Anthony Martial is edging closer to an exit while fringe players such as Benfica-linked Phil Jones could also be offloaded.
More exciting for fans is the prospect of new arrivals who can strengthen United’s bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and a run in either the Champions League or FA Cup.
Fortunately for the Red Devils, they have one of the best in the business in their dugout when it comes to picking out talent.
Rangnick grew to mainstream fame during his time as RB Leipzig sporting director, while he spent two separate seasons as the club’s manager: the 2015/16 and 2018/19 campaigns.

Going by the stats, Rangnick has rarely got it wrong in the market and this will do little to put off Old Trafford chiefs from backing him heavily.
