Ralf Rangnick says Manchester United needs a complete overhaul this summer.
The German took interim charge of the team in December following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and United are still in the midst of a four-way tussle for the final Champions League spot with Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham.
“There might be a couple of players – and I have already named those players to the board – that independent from formation, from style of football, and independent from a new manager, that could be of interest for a club like United,” he said in an interview with Sky Sports.
“But in general, if you look at the size of the way the team needs to be rebuilt, I mean, it’s not enough to bring in three or four new players.
“It will be more, bearing in mind how many players will no longer be here with the contracts running out.
“It’s important to know who will be the new manager, because to start the recruitment process, to find the best possible players only makes sense if you know who will be the manager and how does he want to play,’ he said.
“I think apart from the goalkeeping, we need to make sure that we improve the squad in all areas.
“To bring in players who really help the team to get better – again, it’s about the profile. What kind of players do we need in order to play whichever kind of football we want to play?
“It’s important that you have players who have that in their DNA, who are in a way naturally born aggressive and this is something that is difficult to change,’ he added. ‘But as I said, this is something for the future.”
