Manchester United will try to use the connections of the German expert to bring in the Norwegian striker and is ready to reward him well for that. European giants are preparing for the next year. Then the release clause from Erling Haaland's contract will come into force, so everyone who is interesting, and practically all giants from the Old Continent are in line for his signature, will be able to bring the Norwegian striker below the price, for - 75,000,000 euros.
However, not everyone is in the same negotiating position. Manchester United have been holding a valuable card with the image of Ralf Rangnick in their hands since Monday. And he intends to make the most of it. Earlier this day, prominent German Bild journalist Christian Falk presented information that a German expert on the target has "half of the Bundesliga" and approached Timo Werner, and the same paper now brings bombastic news - United have prepared a check for 10,000,000 euros for Rangnick just to bring Haaland at Old Trafford.
A net bonus to the already agreed 7,500,000 euros for seven months in which he will perform the role of temporary coach. So the German has a motive. And he has his trump cards. Allegedly, Rangnick played a big role in the transfer of the Norwegian miracle to Salzburg almost two years ago.
Add to that, he has a great relationship with Haaland's father Alf-Inge and agent Mino Raiola, with whom he has already met on several occasions in the winter of 2019/20 when he tried to persuade him to Leipzig. However, Erling then estimated that Dortmund would be the best environment for his development.
And he definitely made a good decision. Now Rangnick has the same mission, only with a much bigger financial motive. Other names on the list of potential reinforcements include Christopher Nkunku, Timo Werner, and Amadou Haidara, who is an amazing player.
Nkunku is in great shape, he is the best football player in Leipzig and currently the third top scorer in the Champions League with seven goals. Rangnick tried to bring him to the summer of 2018, just a year before he arrived in Leipzig.
He managed to buy Werner and transformed him into a goal machine. In case he goes for the German striker for the second time, Rangnick will have to use connections, as he has a great relationship with Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel. That would be a great job for United
