Ralf Rangnick needs Man Utd players back on side to help him earn bumper contract bonus
Ralf Rangnick is on a bumper Champions League bonus at Manchester United.The German will bag a ‘significant six-figure sum’, according to Daily Star Sport sources, if United qualify for Europe’s top club competition next season.The one-off payment, worth close to £500,000, will be made to Rangnick, who already earns £180,000-a-week as interim boss, should he steer the Red Devils to a top-four Premier League finish.That race for the Champions League spots is hotting up.United went back to fourth by leapfrogging West Ham with their last-minute win on Saturday afternoon, where Marcus Rashford tapped home the winner.Rangnick, 63, is keen to stay as Old Trafford manager beyond the six-month contract agreed when succeeding sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in late November.Even if he fails to land the job permanently, he will take on a two-year consultancy role with the club.But however things turn out with regards to the managerial post, as long as United are competing against Europe’s elite next term, Rangnick pockets the Champions League add-on cash. Do you think Rangnick will stay beyond the summer for United? Let us know in the comments section United are back in the hunt for a spot in Europe's premier competition thanks to Rashford.The Englishman hasn't been on the greatest run of form as of late, but his goal midweek, against Brentford, seems to have done wonders for his confidence.There was a hint that Edinson Cavani had been in an offside position during the build-up to the goal, but VAR ruled the Uruguayan as onside.After being teed-up by Cavani, Rashford just had to turn the ball into the open net to send United into the top four.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the
Man Utd slap staggering loan fee on Anthony Martial despite flop's miserable form
Ralf Rangnick took interim charge of the team, though he was named on the bench for their Premier League trip to Brentford on Wednesday.The Frenchman’s exclusion has been as a result of both injuries and his desire to leave Old Trafford after a seven-year spell in which he has failed to live up to his £58million transfer fee.He continued to flop this season, despite being handed opportunities to impress by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring just one goal in the 359 minutes he has played.With little sign that he can become a regular starter under Rangnick, Martial made the decision to request a transfer.But he is currently being prevented from leaving by United’s remarkably high asking price considering his form in recent seasons.According to Sport Mediaset, via Football Italia, United are charging a loan fee of around £5m for the attacker.That price is described as being ‘extraordinary’ considering Martial’s situation at United and the fact he will only be at his loan club for five months.Should Manchester United reduce their asking price to allow Anthony Martial to leave? Let us know in the comments section...It is also stated that United would be expecting a loan club to pay Martial’s wages in full, which would cost another £5m.That would bring the total fee to the region of £10m, an astonishing price for a player who has failed so badly to impress.The high demands look set to scupper United’s attempts to move him on, with Juventus general manager Maurizio Arrivabene making it clear his club would not be signing Martial for that price.Another potential suitor in Newcastle are also said to have ‘baulked’ at United’s asking price, leaving Martial with few destinations after Sevilla’s bid for him was rejected.
