And Rangnick has been brought on board to have a say on who will succeed him.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, discussions about the next Red Devils boss have been minimal with Rangnick having no clue who will be in the hot seat next season.
Romano tweeted Rangnick’s quotes: “I have no idea . I am here until the end of the season and it is important to develop the players.”
Rangnick added a few meetings have been had, but a manager targets haven’t been suggested many times.
“We have had one or two meetings with the head of scouting. We have not spoken about the new manager too much,” Romano wrote per Rangnick.
Back in November, Rangnick was appointed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement after a string of bad results.
So far, he has overseen a mixed bag of results – winning eight of his 17 games in charge, drawing eight, but losing just once.
Numerous names have been linked with a move to the top job at United.
Mauricio Pochettino has been mentioned because of his close relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, recent reports suggested although the PSG coach wants to return to the Premier League the Argentinian would prefer a return to Tottenham Hotspur.
And PSG director Leonardo Araujo is reluctant to let Poch go.
Araujo told L’Equipe: “We’ve never thought about changing our manager. We’ve never contacted Zidane or anyone.
“I can say that Mauricio Pochettino has never asked to leave. I have no problem with him. We talk about everything.”
