Premier League

Ralf Rangnick Pushing Manchester United To Sign Star Player

Manchester United will undergo a number of transitions in the next months, affecting everyone from the coaches to the players.

Following suit, The Mirror reports that Ralf Rangnick is planning to overhaul up United's defense, with concerns expressed about the long-term reliability of Maguire, Shaw, and Wan Bi Saka, according to the publication.

Despite the fact that these are merely rumors, Manchester United have already been associated with a number of defenders, with Wolves centre back Max Kilman being the most recent to be linked with the Premier League club.

Rangnick is interested in Kilman and has recommended him to the Manchester United board in order to see if they can persuade him to leave Wolves. Rangnick believes Kilman will be an excellent long-term partner for Varane and believes that United will be able to tempt him away from Wolves.

A first-team regular in recent years, Kilman, who joined Wolverhampton's academy in 2018, has progressively established himself as a first-team regular. Kilman has been unstoppable in the new Bruno Lage era, despite only making his professional debut under Nuno Espirito Santo. He has played in every minute of Wolverhampton's 20 Premier League games so far.

It goes without saying that he has been a rock during this process. His ball handling abilities are exceptional, as seen by his statistics. Every game this season, he's completed 87% of his passes, won 2.2 aerial duels per game, and made two critical tackles.

Even though Kilman has yet to be named to the England squad, former Wolverhampton Wanderers player Dave Edwards believes this could be his year. Edwards, in an interview with the Express, stated, "Kilman must be included in the upcoming England squad. Tyrone Mings and Harry Maguire, in my opinion, are light years ahead of him."

According to sources, a proposal of £40-50 million could persuade Wolves to sell Kilman, whose contract with the club runs until 2026 with an option for an additional year. A deal for Kilman will be difficult, however, because of his long-term contract with the club.

Kilman is the type of player that clubs will go to great efforts to secure their services for a fee. He has the vybz of a modern center back, despite the fact that he is 24 years old. The fact that he is exceptionally quick, tall, and possesses outstanding ball skills speaks much about him. He possesses an uncanny ability to effortlessly wrest control of the ball from the defense. Despite the fact that Maguire is Manchester United's first choice, if the Red Devils are successful in their pursuit of Kilman, Maguire will be required to step up dramatically since Kilman is the real deal.
