Ralf Rangnick is reportedly preparing to add Julian Nagelsmann to Manchester United's shortlist of new managers ahead of his interim appointment.

Incoming Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has reportedly added former RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann to the list of potential candidates for a permanent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer successor.

Rangnick is expected to take over at Old Trafford for the remainder of the campaign before moving into a two-year consultancy role with the Red Devils.

Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be the favourite to be appointed next summer, and Paris Saint-Germain are supposedly open to letting the Argentine leave in 2022.

However, The Mirror claims that Rangnick will put in a good word for Nagelsmann to become the new permanent coach, with the 63-year-old likely to have a say over who will take over next summer.

The 34-year-old only joined Bayern Munich from Leipzig in the summer, though, and his deal with the Bundesliga champions does not expire until 2026.

The Red Devils will once again be led by Michael Carrick for Sunday's Premier League fixture with Chelsea, and Paul Merson has questioned whether Rangnick is the right man for the Man United job.
