GOOD MORNING UTD FANS
Amadou Haidara will become Ralf Rangnick’s first signing next month – if Manchester United pay his £32million release clause now.
Should United be willing to cough up the full amount in January, Leipzig have given a broad hint that they will let him go at once.
Sources in Germany claim Rangnick – who took him to Leipzig from Salzburg two years ago – has already spoken to Haidara’s agent Volker Struth, and a deal is all but agreed.
Elsewhere John McGinn is still on Manchester United’s radar as they prepare for a new future under Rangnick.
SunSport previously revealed United’s interest in the summer of 2019, with Sir Alex Ferguson a big fan of McGinn.
Villa would not have considered a bid of less than £50m back then — and would want even more now.
Ralf Rangnick plans a dinner date with Sir Alex Ferguson to thrash out how to drag Manchester United back to their feet.
He said: “He only came back from New York on Thursday and has to stay at home because of quarantine and Covid regulations.
“But I am very much looking forward to meeting him over the next two or three weeks.
“Darren Fletcher told me he wants to arrange a mutual lunch or dinner with him.”
