Ralf Rangnick Told Manchester United Fan's Dream Transfer Window On Camera, He Had The Perfect Response

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick had the perfect response when asked to sign Jules Kounde, Declan Rice and Erling Haaland this summer. Check it out below.

It's been an underwhelming season for United and they're expected to be active in the transfer window.

Rangnick is set to take on a 'consultancy' role at the end of this campaign and one supporter is hoping he'll be involved in player recruitment.

While meeting fans after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Watford, Rangnick was asked about Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice and Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland.

"There's three big names there in the summer. Kounde, Rice and Haaland," one fan told him.

The 63-year-old asked for the names to be repeated and after hearing them again, he replied: "What, are you dreaming?" as everyone burst into laughter.

Kounde is highly-rated in Spain and came close to joining Chelsea last year.

Rice has established himself as one of the Premier League's top midfielders and regularly captains West Ham.

The England international has been valued at close to £100 million by current boss David Moyes and United have been interested in the past.

Meanwhile, Haaland is expected to leave Dortmund this summer after dominating the Bundesliga for two seasons.

Signing one of them would be huge for United but all three? It'd be game changing.

At least Rangnick isn't letting everyone get carried away.

United are still in a tight battle for the top four and dropping points at home to struggling Watford will be a big blow.

Cristiano Ronaldo hit the post in the first half and had the ball in the back of the net, but he was correctly ruled offside.

Anthony Elanga had their best chance of the second half but put his effort wide.

United sit fourth and two points clear of the chasing pack, but Arsenal in sixth have three games in hand.

Bruno Fernandes captained United with Harry Maguire rested and he told MUTV: "As I said many times, we dropped points for the third [position], that’s the main point for us, we could be one step closer to them.

"But now is not the time to start thinking how many we should have or how many points we will have at the end, we need to look to the next game."
