Ralf Rangnick would be interested in a move to Newcastle United, should they offer him the chance to replace Steve Bruce.

That’s according to SportBILD chief reporter Christian Falk, who says the manager would like the idea of the new project at St James Park.

Rangnick has been heavily linked with a move to the North East following the takeover by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund last week.

It’s felt they’ll look to replace Bruce as soon as possible, with the Magpies boss a much disliked figure among the fanbase, who consider him Mike Ashley’s man and then some.

A man like Rangnick is seen as the ideal replacement given his history of building clubs from the ground up, as he did with RB Leipzig.

That would be ideal for Newcastle in their current situation, although whether he would move having recently joined Spartak Moscow was up for debate.

Falk, though, says that wouldn’t be an issue, and Newcastle could provide Rangnick with the opportunity to make a dream come true.

“Yes, that’s true, he would be available,” he told BILD.

“Of course, he’s still perhaps the favourite at the moment because he’s always pushing for the island.

“He’s been in the mix at United, at Everton, Tottenham, at Chelsea, and it has obviously not happened, but Newcastle is, of course, a project that has also failed.

“He can build up something there; he can lay down structures, he doesn’t have bosses who keep interfering, who really let him do something, I think.

“So I can imagine that Rangnick’s desire to go to the island will finally come true and that the sporting director position at Lokomotiv Moscow won’t stop him.”
