Ralf Rangnick has addressed a major top. What are Manchester United’s intentions in the January transfer window?
According to Rangnick, the most important plan is to sign high-quality players to improve the team.
“My opinion on winter transfers is clear. It needs to be a player who improves the quality, who improves the team to get better, it needs to be a high-quality player, no matter in which area of the pitch,” he said as quoted by the Manchester Evening News (MEN).
“If it’s a midfielder or whatever it is, it needs to be a player who really helps us to get better. And on the other hand, it needs to be a player, in case we would want him in the summer and he should be available for similar conditions in the winter, then it might make sense to discuss it and to have thoughts about that. But only then, if those two things come together.
Rangnick concluded his views by placing much emphasis on the importance of signing players that have the required characteristic way of thinking.
“And it needs to be the right mentality, not only the right quality. We also need, especially for this competitive league, to have the best possible mentality. They need to be mature enough, have a winning mentality. For me, the mentality is even more crucial than anything in the world,” Rangnick concluded.
Coming up next for United is Aston Villa in the FA Cup next Monday.
