He will then remain on for two years in a consultancy role.

Currently employed as head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow, Rangnick is highly regarded across Europe.

He has had spells in charge of a number of German clubs, including VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96.

He was also at Schalke twice, and has earned the title of 'Godfather' of modern German football.

His also had a sting as Director of Football with Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig, during which time both clubs made significant progress.

He only signed a three-year deal with Lokomotiv Moscow in the summer of this year, but now appears set for a move to Manchester.

Most recently, Rangnick was linked to a role with Newcastle following their Saudi-led takeover.

Michael Carrick is currently in charge of Manchester United on a temporary basis.

It's believed he is likely to remain in charge for this weekend's clash with Chelsea, as Rangnick waits on a work permit.

The club has said that it intends to appoint a permanent successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next summer.
