In November 2021, Manchester United sacked club legend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and appointed Ralf Rangnick as the interim manager until the end of the campaign.
Unfortunately, the results have not been fruitful under the management of the German coach and therefore, he is expected to replaced by a permanent boss for next season.
According to El Nacional, Argentine boss, Diego Simeone is very close to leaving his role as the head coach of Atletico Madrid after serving the club for over a decade.
The 51-year-old is one of the best managers in the world. He has won every major domestic title with the Rojiblancos and also led them to two Europa League and UEFA Super Cup victories. However, this season, the reigning champions have struggled and are 16 points league leaders and rivals Real Madrid.
Simeone is the highest paid manager in the world and the Catalan news outlet have reported that Man Utd have promised him the same deal that he currently gets at the Wanda Metropolitano.
It is stated that the South American earns 25 million euros per year, so, Man Utd are offering an enormous deal worth £480,000-a-week to sign him as the head coach.
El Nacional claim that if the Red Devils fail to lure Diego Simeone then they will move and offer a top contract to a proven Premier League manager in the form of Mauricio Pochettino.
