Two years after his disastrous spell at United ended, Ralf Rangnick words continue to haunt United, and it finally seems like they will take his advice.

“If you analyse the situation, it’s not that difficult to analyse,” Rangnick said after Liverpool steamrollered United 4-0 in April 2022.

“The team needs a rebuild, not because some players have to go but quite a few have no contracts any more, their contracts are expiring. Then for me, it’s clear there will be six, seven, eight, maybe 10 new players.” he added.

He in fact called it a necessary open-heart surgery and finally, just finally, United just may complete the surgery.

This ironically comes around the time his two-year consultancy role was supposed to end.

His open-heart surgery was in reference to a complete revolution for United in terms of personell and with a massive exodus looming in the summer, this just may be realized.

There is uncertainty over the futures of an upwards of 15 players with only 7 players being deemed untouchable by the top brass.

Players who will be out of contract may in fact all be released including Anthony Martial, Raphael Varane, Brandon Williams, Jonny Evans and Tom Heaton.

All in all, United’s business has been below under-par especially cleaning out players.

Just a summer after Rangnick’s recommendations, the club only made two first team sales in young midfielders James Garner and Andreas Pereira.

The sub-par selling has directly contributed to our recruitment being just as bad with FFP coming into play.

Barring his ex Ajax contingent, Mason Mount and Höjlund, Erik ten Hag has had to rely on loans and free transfers in the case of Christian Eriksen.

The future is no longer looking bleak as new management Sir Jim Ratcliffe seems to be prepared to clear out dead stock and pave way for a rebuild.
