Redknapp tips things to ‘change quickly’ if Man Utd sign two PL stars



Jamie Redknapp thinks new Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag should sign two Premier League stars in the summer transfer window.

The Dutchman was confirmed as the new permanent Red Devils manager from the end of the season with the 52-year-old still battling for the Eredivisie title at Ajax.

Current Man Utd interim boss Ralf Rangnick insisted this week that there could be as many as ten new signings in the summer transfer window.

And Redknapp thinks the additions of Tottenham striker Harry Kane and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice could help to change things quickly at Man Utd.

“Ten Hag will need to have a look at the players he wants to keep,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “As bad as things are at the moment, things can change quickly with one or two good signings.

“Who do you get? It’s not easy but the ideal one is Declan Rice, and West Ham fans won’t thank me for this.

“You want good, honest pros who can really play, people like Rice. That’s the market they’ve got to be looking for, that can work hard in training and play the right way.

“Could you go and get Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer? I’m not saying he’s going to leave but that’s the sort of player you are going to need, players that will come in and set the right culture.”

And Redknapp thinks Ten Hag will benefit from having “a spy” in the camp in the form of Rangnick, who will feed back to him before he starts his new role at Man Utd.

Redknapp added: “Football managers all have egos; they all believe they can turn this around. You look at the fanbase, the size of the club, the history.

“How could you say no to Manchester United? A few years ago, this would have been the dream job for him.

“Of course it is going to be difficult. He is going to have to work really hard, he is going to have to look at the players and, in the nicest possible way, he has got a spy there already looking at the club, how it is run, the way the players conduct themselves day in, day out.

“He will have a real insight when he goes in there, which will be extremely helpful for him.

“Ralf Rangnick has come out and said they might need 10 new players – who knows what will happen? But he needs time and he needs patience, the fans to get right behind him.

“He has got that aura, especially with the job he has done at Ajax, and I do believe he will do a good job there, but he is going to need time.”
