According to sources, Manchester United are in advanced talks to appoint Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager.

The head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow is set to sign a six-month contract with Old Trafford.

Sources close to Rangnick initially distanced him from the role at Old United when contacted by ESPN in the wake of Solskjaer's departure. Sources said that a breakthrough was reached when a consultant role was offered as part of the move to the club. When his interim tenure ends, he is expected to stay on in some capacity at United.

A source said that talks were at an advanced stage and that United had yet to officially confirm whether or not Rangnick will be joining.

Ragnick was the originator of Gegenpressing.

Can the United job be filled by Mauricio Pochettino?

The German is unlikely to be in charge for Sunday's match against leaders Chelsea due to work permit reasons, but his first match as manager could be against the Gunners on December 2.

Since the dismissal of Ole Solskjaer, United have been searching for an interim manager.

They secured a place in the knockout rounds of the European competition with a 2-0 win at Villarreal on Tuesday, thanks to Michael Carrick's help.

According to sources, United held talks with former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde and that he was also on their list.

The club had an initial inquiry about his availability, but it was knocked back.

Sources said that Mauricio Pochettino would be interested in the Old United job but he is under contract in Paris for another five years.

Tom Hamilton's information was used in the report.
