Rangnick wants Leipzig’s Haidara at Man United

RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara is the first player Ralf Rangnick, the newly appointed interim manager at Manchester United, wants the club to sign, according to The Times.

At the age of 23, Haidara is a Mali international with 24 senior caps to his name so far. He mostly plays in a central, box-to-box role, though he has been deployed to provide protection to the back line as well. Having left his homeland in 2016, he joined RB Salzburg at first, and like many other players of the Austrian Bundesliga side, he spent a year on loan with FC Liefering first.

Haidara made the move to Leipzig for a reported fee of €19 million in 2019, when Rangnick was in charge at the German club. The 63-year-old now wants to bring in an energetic midfielder to help him implement his pressing style, and he apparently sees his former charge as a player that fits his need well.
