Manchester United Makes an Unexpected Plan to Hire Former Coach of Their Arch-Rival, City

Manchester United Makes an Unexpected Plan to Hire Former Coach of Their Arch-Rival, City


Now that they have blocked Ronaldo's transfer to Manchester City, United wants to hire their old coach, Sir Alex Ferguson. Is it possible that the Red Devils have relinquished power to their southern neighbors? Is it possible that they have developed a craving for what their neighbors formerly had?

If Rangnick's contract expires, Manchester United have set their sights on Roberto Mancini, who was previously the manager of Manchester City. This could be the most significant development of the decade.

Despite the fact that this is still an option, the very concept of it is ridiculous, especially given the history between the two teams.

If this agreement comes to fruition, the reverberations it would have throughout Manchester and the rest of England would be unparalleled. The fact that Manchester United has consistently criticized City and whatever signings they have made in the past might be seen as an embarrassment to the club.

Manchester City manager Sir Alex Ferguson once stated that the club would never be a major force in his lifetime. If such a situation were to arise, it would be impossible to predict how he would react. The Italian who took the Premier League title from his grasp is now being discussed as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho, whose Manchester United is in trouble.

Some would argue that the concept is justified by the fact that the Red Devils are in desperate need of any assistance they can obtain. Was Manchester United ever anticipating being in a position where they would require assistance from their neighbors in order to survive? If history is to be remembered, did they ever imagine themselves in this position?

Perhaps the Italians have what Old Trafford is looking for, but will they be able to put their egos aside and save themselves?

Whatever happens, it will be documented that the all-powerful Manchester United, despite their abhorrence for Manchester City, were once in such desperate need of a manager that they explored the possibility of appointing someone with a Manchester City connection.

Indeed, the neighbors who were already bothersome became even more so.
