Former Toronto FC, Sharp would join Man Utd from Lokomotiv Moscow – Rangnick is on it after Kieran McKenna decided to leave and start new Ipswich chapter.”

According to Sky Sports, Rangnick and Sharp became acquainted during the latter’s time at New York Red Bulls.

The incoming assistant coach and analyst is also familiar with another United coach in Chris Armas, as they worked together at Toronto FC as well.

Sky Sports quote The Toronto Sun’s description of Sharp and his importance in “opposition scouting, match planning, in match and post-match analysis. He also assisted the scouting department in identification and recruitment”.

Fans may grow concerned over the lack of top-quality coaching, as this was also an issue under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but they must give Rangnick the benefit of the doubt.

The German boss has a track record of improving clubs and helping build some structure so until results on the pitch determine otherwise, the coaches should be trusted.

Many turned on the likes of Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick, and Kieran McKenna towards the end of Solskjaer’s reign as supporters believed the squad wasn’t well-coached.

Regardless of whether that was true or not, unfortunately the results weren’t good enough after two successful years and so the legendary Norwegian had to leave.

Published

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
