Man Utd’s most expensive signings
It’s the transfer season and Man Utd is looking for new signings.
But will Ralf Rangnick break the club’s current transfer record, at £89.3m for Paul Pogba?
Rangnick is not at United running
Ralf Rangnick is reportedly not going to take up a permanent job at Man Utd this summer.
The Star claim Brendan Rodgers, Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are three names on United’s shortlist.
That means Rangnick will move into a behind-the-scenes advisory role once his interim position ends later this year.

Man Utd have offered Paul Pogba a new contract with a whopping £500,000-a-week salary.
France’s World Cup winner Pogba is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, while former club Juventus have also expressed an interest.
SunSport understands that he has yet to decide whether he will put pen to paper under the new conditions.
United sources fear he will leave the club, but the new contract is around £100,000 more than Pogba is expected to get across Europe.
It would make him the highest-paid player in Premier League history, with a base salary of around £400,000 a week before additions.

Agbonlahor urges United to sell Ronaldo
Gabby Agbonlahor says Man United should get rid of Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
He told TalkSport: “You have seen the difference in Fernandes since Ronaldo joined. Before Ronaldo arrived, Fernandes was the main kicker. Now Ronaldo is the main man.
“Ronaldo was the captain in the game against Wolves. Before Ronaldo arrived, Fernandes was captain when Harry Maguire was sidelined and now he’s on the bench.
“There will be tension there. If you look at the whole scene, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know that he made a mistake when he put Ronaldo on the field, simple as that.
“Yes, Ronaldo scored but he scored the goals Greenwood should have scored, Rashford would have scored in that position.
“For me, I will let Ronaldo go in the summer. Let Greenwood, Sancho and Rashford play together”.
