RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann has earned himself a solid reputation for his tactics and squad management. Given that he’s still at the age where we can call him a “coaching prodigy”, there are plenty of clubs who will likely pursue the 33-year-old.
Enter Manchester United.
Per ESPN, the Red Devils fancy themselves some Nagelsmann:
Manchester United are adamant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position as manager is not yet under threat despite back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir. But even if the Norwegian coach cannot turn things around, sources have told ESPN that Mauricio Pochettino would not be the only option to replace him.
Pochettino, who has been out of work since leaving Tottenham a year ago, is the obvious choice should United decide to make a change, but sources have told ESPN that RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann would also come under consideration alongside the Argentinian coach.
