Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick will reportedly be given a huge £8.5million bonus if he convinces Erling Haaland of a move to Old Trafford. Rangnick’s arrival was confirmed earlier this week and he’s been at the club’s stadium familiarising himself with his new surroundings.
United fans will have to wait to see Rangnick in the dugout as the club confirmed Michael Carrick will remain in charge for Thursday’s game against Arsenal.
But the 63-year-old is set to take charge of his first United game this weekend against Crystal Palace.
Rangnick joins as the interim boss until the end of the season, when he will then go into the boardroom on a consultancy role.
It’s been reported that he will have a huge say in transfers at the club and Haaland appears to be the club’s top target.

Rangnick oversaw football operations for all of Red Bull’s European teams while Haaland was making a name for himself at Red Bull Salzburg.
And United are desperate for Rangnick to use his contacts in the game to steal Haaland away from Borussia Dortmund next summer.
According to German outlet Bild, Rangnick will be richly rewarded should he convince the striker of a move to Old Trafford.
It is claimed that Rangnick will receive a huge bonus worth £8.5m should Haaland join the Red Devils.
The 21-year-old will supposedly be available for around £67m next summer due to a release clause in his Dortmund contract.
United aren’t alone in wanting to sign Haaland though with the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona all being linked.
Speaking little over a year ago, Rangnick made it clear just what he thought of Haaland’s talent.
“Erling is one of my favourite players and he will be the benchmark for central strikers for the next 10 to 15 years,” he said previously.
“He combines almost all the assets that you need as a striker.
“He’s 193cm tall, he’s extremely fast and he’s good on the ball.
“He can control and defend the ball and can be the link between the midfielders and the rest of the forwards.
“He’s extremely dangerous in front of goal, he’s good in the air and he’s got a top mentality as well.”
