Ralf Rangnick has asked Man United to explore a possible deal for Timo Werner. The newly-appointed interim coach has already started his preparation for his new role, as Rangnick seems to manage the Red Devils for the remainder of the season before taking on the role of a consultant for the next couple of years.
Ralf’s appointment suggests he is ready to have a major role in Man United’s policy in the coming years. And it appears the German tactician is favouring footballers he has worked with in the past, with Man United being recently linked with a move for Amadou Haidara.
Germany international is next on this list, as he is one of the footballers rated highly by the incoming Man United coach. Ralf was the one who brought the 25-year-old striker from Stuttgart to RB Leipzig back in 2016.
Since then, the forward turned striker became one of the best attackers in the Bundesliga, with a stellar tally of 95 goals in 159 competitive games for the Red Bulls. However, following his big-money move to Stamford Bridge last year, Timo has found it difficult to prove himself in the Premier League.
Werner has struggled to deal with the soaring expectations at Chelsea, resulting in a lack of confidence in front of goal. His first campaign struggles at the London club even forced the club to spend big on Romelu Lukaku earlier this year. The German striker, in that regard, could turn out to be a sensible option for Man United.
