Man Utd transfer chief Matt Judge RESIGNS from role, Kalvin Phillips ‘open to transfer’, Joe Cole’s verdict on Fernandes

Good morning Red Devils fans

Ralf Rangnick has been officially confirmed as the new manager of the Austria national team – but will continue to work at Man United in a consultancy role.

The German has agreed a two-year deal with the Austrian FA to lead the national side until Euro 2020.

However, the 62-year-old will combine his new job with a consultancy role at United, and insists he’s committed to helping the club to rebuild.

A statement from Rangnick reads: “I will take over as national team manager of Austria at the end of the season but will continue my consultancy with Manchester United.

“I’m really looking forward to playing my part in helping United become a real force.”

Rangnick’s consultancy role will see him work just six days a month at Old Trafford.

And he is expected to play a large role in helping Erik ten Hag with recruitment.

That’s after United’s head of corporate development resigned on Friday.

Matt Judge’s role saw him lead transfer and contract negotiations.

But he is now serving his notice period and will not play an active role in signings this summer.

Finally, Man Utd will hold talks with Cristiano Ronaldo over his future this summer.

Rangnick confirmed: This is something that we should speak about between Erik and the board and myself. 

“Cristiano has another year of contract. It is also important to find out what he wants, if he wants to stay.

“In the end, it’s both Erik’s and Cris’s decision what they want to do. 

“It is not for me to speak about that but the performance of Cris (against Chelsea) was really great.”
