Ralf Rangnick urges Julian Nagelsmann to join Tottenham in the summer

Ralf Rangnick has told Julian Nagelsmann what managerial position he should take next following his dismissal at Bayern Munich.
But the 35-year-old is a wanted man, with a host of clubs thought to be keeping tabs on him.
He was a candidate to become the next Chelsea manager after they axed Graham Potter until he withdrew himself from the running.
Real Madrid are also believed to be interested in hiring the German manager, with Carlo Ancelotti's strongly linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Not to mention Tottenham as Rangnick has urged Nagelsmann to consider joining the North London club this summer.
There's a managerial vacancy at Spurs, who got rid of Antonio Conte while also firing interim manager Cristian Stellini.
Rangnick believes Nagelsmann and Spurs are a good fit as the former Manchester United interim boss praised the club's stadium and training centres.
"I think Tottenham are an exciting club in more ways than one," said the current Austria manager.
"They probably have one of the most modern, beautiful stadiums in the world at the moment.
"They have one of the best training centres there is at the moment and Daniel Levy, who has been running the club for many, many years."
Rangnick added: "If Tottenham really want him, then I think it would be important if a sporting director was still there to stand by him.
"This can be a very, very exciting story. There’s room for improvement, a lot of room for improvement, and yet it’s not a club where you expect to finish in the top one, two or three right away."
Nagelsmann has only managed in Germany, taking charge of Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig and, of course, Bayern.
But a move to England may be on the cards, having previously admitted he 'could imagine' working in the Premier League.
Speaking in 2021 during his time at Leipzig, he said: "The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like Jurgen who is very successful. It could be a step in the future.
"But, you know, in soccer it's not that easy to plan how long will you be a manager in Leipzig? When will you go to the Premier League? I could imagine going to the Premier League.
"I could imagine staying as a manager in the Bundesliga for my whole career. It's cool to be a manager in my own country, I love it. But then perhaps in the future we can meet face-to-face in the Premier League, who knows."
