Pogba options open, Agent Rangnick, £ 1,000 a week Carroll, Newcastle’s Director of Football Search – The Athletic


Manchester United prepared for Ralf Rangnick’s arrival as interim manager with a respectable draw at Chelsea and the German should be reinforced over the next month or so if Paul Pogba returns from an injury.

Pogba was out six to eight weeks after suffering a thigh problem in French service on November 8 and the schedule for his comeback is believed to remain realistic.

The midfielder continues to rehabilitate in Dubai but is said to be thrilled with the idea of ​​working under Rangnick after receiving positive feedback about the 63-year-old from contacts in the game.

Rangnick followed United’s 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in Germany on television and had no contact with the players or the coaching staff or any influence on team selection.

His appointment was confirmed this morning but it is not yet clear whether his first responsible game will be his visit to Arsenal on Thursday or his trip from Crystal Palace to Old Trafford on December 5th.

There is still some uncertainty as to when Rangnick’s visa process will be completed after his face-to-face meetings with the United hierarchy in London’s Mayfair last week. Unusually for such a high profile appointment, Rangnick did not use an agent during his talks with United and chose to represent himself in negotiations.
