Ralf Rangnick arrival at Manchester United could lead to Donny van de Beek and Dean Henderson exits – Paper Round

Henderson and Van de Beek joined with an exit

The Telegraph believes some first-team players could leave Manchester United as they prepare to review the squad according to Ralf Rangnick’s plans. The German will soon arrive as interim boss, and Donny van de Beek as well as Dean Henderson, could both leave in January. There is also the expectation that Jesse Lingard will leave in the summer for nothing.


United hopes Rangnick League will secure Haaland deal – Paper Round


Paper Round view: For each player’s career, they need to be on track to get regular first-team football. Van de Beek looked like a great player, but he had his confidence ruined by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Henderson needs more football if he wants to start his career and fulfill his potential, and Lingard is most effective as a subordinate – presumably he wants more.

City considers Modric a move

The Mirror broadcasts reports from Spain suggesting they are looking at a move for Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric. The 36-year-old Croatian midfielder has yet to agree on a new deal with his current club and he is considering his options. While Newcastle United are interested, City could offer him a Premier League football before transferring to New York FC.

Paper Round view: City have an advantage over almost every other club when it comes to negotiating contracts for older players. They have the resources, which means it doesn’t matter if they pay too much and too long for aging players, because they can always channel them to one of their sister clubs. It also allows them to attract players and offer a useful path to retirement.

United’s long-term Rangnick plan

In addition to opening the door for the departure of three players as discussed above, Spanish newspaper Marca believes that – as previously mentioned in Paper Round – United hopes Rangnick’s arrival will help them sign Erling Haaland. Spanish newspaper Marca suggests this is part of a plan that sees Rangnick step down from manager at the end of the season to become sporting director.

Paper Round view: Earlier reports were quite unclear about what would be required of Rangnick after he retired in the summer. If Rangnick has been in place for a few years as sporting director, then that’s a huge step from having Ed Woodward involved in the strategic side of things, and could highlight the era after Alex Ferguson was lost a decade.

A Derby County takeover sees a dealer fly in

The Sun reports that the proposed takeover of Derby County by American businessman Chris Kirchner is progressing, but not too quickly. Kirchner will fly to England in an attempt to iron out the remaining obstacles. This includes resolving any reward to HMRC as well as compensation to other clubs such as Middlsbrough and Wycombe.

Paper Round view: Kirchner will have to know the final costs that are on the way out of the club as part of a bankruptcy resolution, because until he has at least an estimate, it is difficult to agree a fee with the managers. Clubs often suffer from repeated setbacks from situations like this, so it’s best not to come up with surprises for the prospective owner.
