RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has explained that he rejected the opportunity to go to Real Madrid in 2018, believing it was not the correct step in his career at that time.

RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann is on Manchester United’s radar.

ESPN says Nagelsmann would be considered as a viable replacement should United move on from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The RB Leipzig boss has a glowing reputation at the age of 33 and despite being beaten 5-0 by United in the Champions League last month, he remains highly-rated across the continent.

United insisted on Thursday that Solskjaer retains their full support right now and that there had been no approach made for former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino in the wake of the defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir.

Pochettino would not be the only man under consideration if Solskjaer is moved on, with interest in Nagelsmann.
