Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has broken down the criteria players must meet to secure a move to the club.


Rangnick is unbeaten in his first three games as United boss and kept an unchanged XI for his two Premier League games.

A midweek draw against Young Boys in the Champions League saw him make wholesale changes and the drop in quality was noticeable.

The 63-year-old is likely to step into a consultancy role at Old Trafford next season and is already analysing what's needed for the future.

I've got to know them better in this week, I saw most of them play in the two games and had three, four or five training sessions this week," Rangnick said prior to Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich City.

"But it's still too early to speak about what might happen in the winter transfer window. If I look at the number of players we have, it's still a big squad, we definitely do not have not enough players."

Anthony Martial's agent confirmed on Friday his client would like to leave the club, while Paul Pogba's future remains undecided.

United will be keen to strengthen should they leave and Rangnick has a strict policy on winter moves.

"My opinion on winter transfers is clear," he continued.

"It needs to be a player who improves the quality, who helps the team to get better. It needs to be a high quality player, no matter which area of the pitch.

"On the other hand, it needs to be a player who, if they were available in the summer, they're available for similar conditions in the winter. Then it might make sense.

"It needs to be the right mentality as well as the right quality. For this competitive league, we need the best possible mentality."

"He needs to be mature enough, have a winning mentality, and for me the mentality in this league is even more crucial than in any other league in Europe."

RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara has been linked in recent weeks and previous manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen to improve that area of the pitch.

United currently sit fifth in the Premier League table and return to action away at Brentford on Tuesday.
