Manchester United have reportedly approached Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi over taking control of the managerial position at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils currently have Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager until the end of the season, after which he will take up a consultancy role at the club.

United have been strongly linked with Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Haag for the position of their manager in recent months.

But, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan head coach Inzaghi has also been approached by United.

Inzaghi arrived at Inter after Antonio Conte's departure from the club and has guided the club to the top of the Serie A, one point clear of AC Milan.

The report from Italy also claims that Atletico Madrid want him to replace Diego Simeone next season.

Inter, meanwhile, know of the rising interest in their manager and have reportedly started preparing a new contract offer for him, which would tie him down to the club until 2025.

Talking of United, trusted French newspaper Le Parisien claims senior figures in the United boardroom are keen to appoint Pochettino as manager, while Rangnick prefers Ten Hag. 

The Red Devils, for now, have a lot to concentrate on if they are to save their 2021-22 season from being a disastrous one.

United have made it to the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 and will look to perform well in this competition for the rest of the season.

Talking about the Premier League, after losing their last game to Wolves at Old Trafford, Manchester United are seventh on the table, two points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who have played a game less than the Red Devils.
