EKO HOT BLOG reports that Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick is keen on bringing RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer to Old Trafford in the summer after working with the player when he was still employed by the Bundesliga club. According to Bild (h/t Express),
The German was roped in by the Red Devils from Lokomotiv Moscow late last year to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked by the club after a poor string of results that saw the team slip down the Premier League table. Strengthening the midfield at United is a priority for the club at the end of the season, and the task will be up to the incoming new manager to rope in the best available players to ensure this is done. Rangnick is expected to make way for the new boss when his tenure as head coach expires in the summer.
Laimer could be one of the players that the English club could target, with the Austria international impressing in Germany with his performances in the middle of the pitch for Leipzig over the past few years. Rangnick was at Leipzig when they signed the 24-year-old from RB Salzburg in 2017, with the manager said to be an “absolute advocator” for the Austrian if he were to move to United in the summer. Given his connection to the Bundesliga club, he could touch base with his former employers to ascertain whether they are willing to let Laimer leave.

The midfielder is in hot form at the moment, with the player scoring twice and assisting another goal as his team stunned Borussia Dortmund 4-1 at Signal Iduna Park. The Manchester club will have to act quickly if they plan to sign him, however, as Leipzig intends to open talks with him at the end of the campaign to extend his current contract, which runs until next summer.
