Manchester United want New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber to be Ralf Rangnick's assistant manager at the club, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly keen for New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber to be Ralf Rangnick's assistant manager at Old Trafford.

Rangnick has now officially started work with the 20-time English champions, with the German preparing his side for Sunday's Premier League clash at home to Crystal Palace.

Michael Carrick's surprise exit has left the club without an obvious candidate for the assistant manager role, though, with Lars Kornetka not allowing Rangnick to Manchester despite a host of speculation.

According to The Sun, the Red Devils are keen for Struber to make the move to Old Trafford and have already been in contact with the Austrian to discuss a deal.

Struber, who managed Barnsley between November 2019 and October 2020, worked with Rangnick at Red Bull Salzburg, with the former a youth-team coach at the Austrian club.

The report claims that Rangnick is a 'huge admirer' of the 44-year-old, who has led the New York Red Bulls to 13 wins from his 35 matches at the helm.

Man United would have to buy Struber out of the next two years of his contract in order to bring him to the club.
