Man Utd To Make Managerial U-Turn?

Despite it being rumoured that Manchester United have lined up four managers as potential successors to interim boss Ralf Rangnick, a shock report has now suggested that they could perform a U-turn on their plans. 

Lingard Is 'Furious' With Man Utd

According to The Sun, Rangnick has enthralled the club's chiefs amid United's recent form, to the point where they are putting their managerial hunt on pause.

With five wins in eight league matches – losing only once – and with United having earned a fourth round FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough next Friday, it seems the board is interested in seeing what the German can do from now until the end of the season.

The achievement of a top-four finish could help him make the case to be given the Old Trafford job permanently.

His handling of egos and his in-game tactical flexibility has reportedly impressed, with the tactician showing both those abilities in their recent 3-1 EPL win over Brentford

After Cristiano Ronaldo was substituted off, the disgruntled five-time Ballon d'Or winner was seen making his feelings known to the manager, but it proved to be an inspired decision as his replacement, Marcus Rashford, would go on to find the back of the net for United's third goal.

It was thought that Rangnick was only going to be used as a stop-gap before he moved into his consultancy role at the end of the season, but this may now change.

Ajax Amsterdam's Erik ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino have been mentioned as potential candidates for the permanent role, but it could be that United's long-term solution is right under their nose in Rangnick. 

It is further claimed that the former RB Leipzig boss has made it known he would like the job on a full-time basis if the interim period goes according to plan.

Below are the four managers most heavily linked with the permanent position at the Red Devils:
