RANGERS LEADING RACE FOR MCATEE
Scottish champions Rangers are reportedly leading the race to sign Manchester City youngster James McAtee on loan until the end of the season. Apart from Rangers, other clubs such as Girona and Swansea City are also interested in the player.
In addition to being a friend of the abovementioned Guardiola, Rangers manager Van Bronckhorst is also a big advocate of possession style football thus making the Scottish champions favourites to land McAtee.
Van Bronckhorst has already landed a young Premier League attacker on loan in Amad Diallo and he’s keen to add McAtee to his squad. Ivorian international Diallo has signed for Rangers on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season. He has been signed as a like-for-like replacement for Romanian star IanisHagi who has been ruled out until the end of the season due to a serious knee injury. Diallo is on course to make his Rangers bow when they face Ross County this weekend. In his first interview, Diallo was impressed with what he has seen at Rangers as the young winger admitted thathe knew little about Rangers before signing as a Manchester United loanee.
The main target for Rangers and Van Bronckhorst is to retain the Scottish Premiership title at the end of this season ahead of Old Firm Derby rivals Celtic.
