Ralf Rangnick reportedly had a 'lengthy' meeting with Manchester United regarding the possibility of replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
The latter has come under severe pressure after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth consigned United to their fourth defeat in 11 Premier League games this season.
According to The Athletic, the 61-year-old met for talks with a United official after the meeting was set up by Ed Woodward.
Rangnick, head of sport and development at Leipzig, specialises in overseeing player development within the framework of a long-term plan - something that United have attempted to improve on since the days of Jose Mourinho.
However, the German has also emerged as a target for Bayern Munich after the club sacked Niko Kovac over the weekend.body check tags ::
