No fewer than seventeen Manchester United players have told Ralf Rangnick that they are not happy at the club after holding a face-to-face meeting with the German, according to Daily Mail.

The manager is now aware about the frustrations under his watch as a staggering 17 players are said to be unhappy with his style and have now met him.

United are finding life difficult at the moment as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s successor Rangnick struggles to make noticeable changes at Old Trafford.

The dressing room is said to be divided, with as many as 11 players looking to leave Old Trafford.

Daily Mail says that the problem is even bigger than initially feared, with a total of 17 players unhappy with their current situation under Rangnick.

Rangnick is now aware of the dire mood in his dressing room after meeting with all his players face-to-face as Manchester United are facing the prospect of a massive exodus of players.

Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are among the players who want to leave Old Trafford with their contracts ending in less than six months.

While Anthony Martial is keen on joining Sevilla, Juan Mata is also looking to secure a January switch to either Spain or MLS.

Edinson Cavani was on his way to Barcelona before his deal was blocked by United this January, but is expected to depart Old Trafford when his contract expires in the summer.

Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson and Eric Bailly are all unhappy at their lack of playing time.

Phil Jones also wants regular football, while Nemanja Matic, Fred and Diogo Dalot are entering the final year of their deals.

According to the report, there are other players in the squad who are also unhappy but not actively looking to leave.

There are reports that some of the players are questioning the appointment of Rangnick, who has not won any notable silverware in football and feel Antonio Conte would have been a better fit.

Guardiola reacts as Haaland fumes over not scoring hat-trick against West Ham

Published

on

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said Erling Haaland’s anger at not scoring a hat-trick against West Ham, reminded him of Lionel Messi.

Haaland grabbed both goals as the Premier League champions began defence of their title with a 2-0 win at the London Stadium.

The Norway striker converted a first-half penalty, before running onto Kevin De Bruyne’s pass to complete a brace on his City debut.

In a post-match interview, Haaland said it was “a bit s***’” that he was unable to score one more, before being substituted in the closing stages.”

But Guardiola said the player’s reaction was what he would expect from a top player.

“I was fortunate to be with [Lionel] Messi.

“When he scores two, he wants three, when he scores three, he wants four. All the top players are the same.

“They are never satisfied, always hungry, starving for goals, and want more, but at same time, I have to use other players,” Guardiola said.

Ten Hag to sign two strikers after 2-1 defeat to Brighton

Manchester United have opened talks to sign Benjamin Sesko and Marko Arnautovic, ESPN reports.

United have contacted Bologna about Arnautovic, who has previously played in the Premier League for Stoke and West Ham.

United manager, Erik ten Hag, has pressed the club to sign an experienced forward who would be content with a back up role off the bench.

Arnautovic is 33 years old and Ten Hag is a fan of the player after working together at FC Twente.

The move for Arnautovic is considered separate from that of Sesko.

Chelsea are also interested in the 19-year-old, although Salzburg would rather keep him until next summer.

Ten Hag was asked after the 2-1 defeat against Brighton on Sunday about the need for new players.

The Dutchman replied: “I don’t go into names and I think in this preseason, 250 players are involved or linked with Man United, so that’s it.

“We have two strikers [Ronaldo and Martial], maybe a third one, [Marcus] Rashford.

“We considered him as a striker, but he had a really good season on the left side and he had two really good chances but the typical nine wasn’t available today.”
