Rangnick is eager to give Ten Hag a 'thorough handover briefing' at the end of the season, according to The Sunday Times.

The German has been interim manager since last November but has been unable to prevent the club from recording their worst ever Premier League season.

Rangnick, however, is keen to speak with Ten Hag and tell him about the many issues currently besetting the club.

The 63-year-old wants to give Ten Hag a 'detailed and unsparing assessment of the club's playing squad.'

Rangnick is said to believe that the current squad is unfit for purpose, lacking the physicality and character traits required to compete with the best in the Premier League and Europe. He is also reportedly keen to give his thoughts on how the squad can be improved.

Rangnick is due to move into a consultancy role at the club at the end of the season, a position he will combine with his new job as manager of the Austria national team.

The German coach reportedly wants to play an active part in Man United's rebuild.

Meanwhile, according to The Mirror, it is currently 'unclear' if Rangnick will be in charge of Man United for the club's final game of the season on Sunday when the Red Devils face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The uncertainty around Rangnick's position appears to be because his successor is set to start in his new role sooner than expected.

Given the scale of the job at Man United, the Dutch coach is understandably eager to begin his role early.

"There is a lot of work to do there [at Manchester United]. That is the case with every club," Ten Hag said.

"A number of things still need to be organised in the staff and also in the selection. We will be working intensively on this from tomorrow."

The 52-year-old is also reportedly keen to work with Cristiano Ronaldo next season.
