The deal is not yet finalised as there are some contractual elements that need to be sorted followed by an application for a work permit, the BBC said. The 63-year-old Rangnick will then have to move to the Old Trafford club for an additional two years in a consultancy role.

After facing embarrassing defeats at the hands of Leicester (2-4), Liverpool (0-5), Manchester City (0-2) and Watford (1-4), United announced that Solskjaer had left his role as manager on November 21. In a statement issued by the club, United said that Michael Carrick would take charge of the team for the forthcoming games while the “club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season”.

Under Carrick, who was Solskjaer’s assistant, United defeated Villarreal in their latest match on November 23. The 2-0 victory assured United that they would finish at the top of their Champions League group.

It is understood that Carrick will again have to take charge of United against Chelsea on Sunday as Rangnick won’t be able to reach in the time ahead of the match.
