The Red Devils’ hunt for a long-term manager is beginning to take shape.

Ralf Rangnick was only appointed as Manchester United’s interim manager in November, but the search for his replacement is reportedly taking shape.

The German is only in charge until the end of the season and is due to take up a consultancy role at the club upon the conclusion of his short-term deal.

The Red Devils are already considering their options for Rangnick’s replacement in the summer and Simone Inzaghi is said to be one of their main targets.

The Inter Milan manager’s agent has received calls from United about the job, according to Corriere dello Sport, via Football Italia.

The newspaper claimed that Inter’s results and playing style have earned Inzaghi a lot of interest, with Atletico Madrid also enquiring about his availability.

Despite Diego Simeone’s success during his 10-year stay in Spain, it is thought Atleti could consider replacing him ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Inter are aware of the interest around the 45-year-old and will offer him a contract extension till 2025, at the end of the season.

The Italians are willing to double his current salary in a bid to tempt him to remain at the San Siro.

Inzaghi has spent his entire 30-year career in Italy and could take some persuading to leave his native country.
