Rangnick’s First Signing Could Be The Epl Player Sir Ferguson Once Asked Solskjaer To Sign.

Rangnick has only been in charge of Manchester for a few days, but he has already been linked with a slew of transfer targets. 

With Lingard, Pogba, and Van de Beek potentially leaving, it's not surprising that the majority of these links are to midfielders. Amadou Haidara has been a constant name linked to Manchester United, but according to the latest reports, Rangnick may pass on Haidara in favor of a £50 million move for Aston Villa's John McGinn

A move for McGinn would be nothing new, as it would be fulfilling Sir Alex Ferguson's plea to Solsjaker two years ago, when Ferguson was said to have pictured McGinn as a perfect midfield fit for Solsjkaer's midfield. Due to United's unwillingness to pay McGinn's asking price at the time, Solsjkaer was unable to sign him.

McGinn has gone on to establish himself as one of the brightest Premier League midfielders in recent seasons, and thus Manchester United's interest is justified. 

Coincidentally, Rangnick revealed in his first press conference as United manager that he plans to take Ferguson for lunch in the near future. This get-together between the two could have a lot to talk about, but perhaps the name of McGinn will come up if Rangnick discusses with Ferguson the way forward for United's midfield.
