Some Manchester United players have requested action in the January transfer window from Ralf Rangnick regarding their future, according to a report.
The Red Devils’ season started brightly, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut with two goals a hopeful sign of the future. However, their form fell from there, and former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær was fired in November.
Despite the fact that German tactician Rangnick arrived at Old Trafford with an exciting reputation, he has not been able to inspire a full turnaround in the team’s fortunes.
Instead, experts like Gary Neville have slapped “whingebags” in the club for their poor body language. Furthermore, reports have revealed clicks inside the locker room.
On Wednesday, reports claimed it as many as 11 players want to leave United. Tea Daily Mirror mentioned four in his report, including Jesse Lingard and Donny van de Beek.
Now, that Manchester Evening News has provided more information on the situation from its sources.
‘Confrontation’ is reportedly underway between a number of players and Rangnick about their future. People like Lingard, Van de Beek and Dean Henderson have been fighting for playing time throughout this season.
And if Rangnick does not sanction exits for the group of players, the situation will take another turn for the worse.
Interim boss Rangnick has already offered his firm stance on keeping the squad together in January.
In fact, he has said Edinson Cavani will not be leaving this month. He has also said he is dependent on Anthony Martial staying at Old Trafford.

Rangnick, Man Utd problems explained
Tea Manchester Evening News also refers to the broader problems at United.
United’s players are becoming ‘deadly’ by the falling standards of the club. Furthermore, there is “anger” among their underutilized players.
The negative body language, meanwhile, has been attributed to the lack of performance so far this season.
United started the season in a strong position following the arrival of Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo. However, they are now in seventh place in the Premier League.
