Speaking to the media after the Liverpool defeat on Tuesday, Ralf Rangnick said: “There will be a rebuild here. Six, seven, maybe ten new players will come.
“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 [out of contract].
“Apart from goalkeeping, we need to improve the squad in all areas. If you know what you’re looking for, it doesn’t have to take four or five years.”
Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani will be leaving Manchester United on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Erik ten Hag’s appointment is expected to be announced later this week with the Dutchman overseeing the summer transfer window as Rangnick transitions into a consultancy role.
