Ralf Rangnick just doesn’t really get going as a team manager at Manchester United. The German could only win one of the last four games with the Red Devils, the critical voices about the 63-year-old are getting louder. Rangnick would like reinforcements for his team during the current transfer phase. In addition to Amadou Haidara from Bundesliga club RB Leipzig, Jude Bellingham from BVB is now being traded more and more hotly.
According to a report by “The Athletic“The star of Borussia Dortmund should be at the top of the wish list of the ManUnited coach, who sees a clear need for improvement, especially in midfield.
Bellingham has been traded with top Premier League sides on the island in recent weeks after enjoying a stellar career at BVB over the past year and a half.
As an 18-year-old, it’s hard to imagine the Black and Yellow midfield without him. The England international started 17 of the 19 Bundesliga games this season, scoring three goals.
Only captain Marco Reus was longer on the field at BVB than Bellingham, who played very calmly and consistently at his young age and is usually one of the strongest players in Dortmund.
Zakaria probably no longer an issue at ManUnited
Exactly these attributes have been missing at Manchester United in the last few weeks since Rangnick took office. The ensemble around superstar Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t seem balanced and doesn’t harmonize properly in too many phases of a game.
So far, the German team manager has not succeeded in forming a functioning unit from the outstanding squad.
Manchester United are only seventh in the table after 20 Premier League games and are in danger of missing out on qualifying for the Champions League, the English record champions’ minimum target.
BVB had already made it clear in the last few months that they did not want to let their probably most talented midfielder go. Bellingham still has a long-term contract with the Westphalians until 2025.
Denis Zakaria from Borussia Mönchengladbach should no longer be an issue at Manchester United. The Swiss should not have convinced the club managers in the long term.
