Man Utd news: Ralf Rangnick confirms 'quite a few players will leave' this summer

German gives his verdict after Man Utd's final home game of the season ends in victory.

Ralf Rangnick predicted major changes at Manchester United this summer following their 3-0 win over Brentford.

The win brought an end to their season at Old Trafford and will almost certainly be the last game many of the squad will play for the club at their own ground.

Rangnick will move into a consultancy role this summer while Ajax boss Erik ten Hag replaces him in the dugout.

That will not be the only big change at the club in the coming months, though.

"So far we haven't been able to speak as Erik is focused on winning the Dutch league and we had to focus on games here," Rangnick said.

"Obviously quite a few players will leave the club so we will need new players, top-quality players, but I strongly believe if everybody works together we can raise the level and bring back Manchester United to the spaces and areas they should be.

"Apart from the goalkeepers, where we have three excellent options in Tom Heaton, David De Gea and Dean Henderson, all the other areas there will be players leaving the club so I wouldn't put my focus on specific areas of the pitch.

"Others clubs have only needed two or three transfer windows (to get into contention) so we have to make sure we bring in top-quality players to really help us raise the level of all the other players.

"If that happens this summer and the next transfer windows, I don't think it should take too long."

Man Utd were comfortable throughout against Brentford, with goals from Bruno FernandesCristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane easing them to victory.

"I thought we were in control of the game for the most part," Rangnick said.

"I think we had 65 per cent possession and passing accuracy of more than 90 per cent, so in possession it was one of our best performances this year.

"There were still a few gaps defensively but I think in total this was the type of performance we wanted to show for our supporters.

"I think the fact we played Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic gave us some quality in midfield plus Cristiano and Bruno. Bruno was also showing a positive performance, not only that he scored the goal but also in possession so it was not so easy for them to take the ball.

"In the first half we had a few too many back passes and square balls which invited them to press, but in general in possession it was a good performance."

Man Utd have two games remaining this season, both of them away from home against Brighton and Crystal Palace.
