And he is expected to usher in a new era at Old Trafford, with several high-profile players already targeted.
SunSport can exclusively reveal Ten Hag is ready to take Ajax’s Brazilian winger Antony with him.
Meanwhile, RB Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku is also on United’s radar.
And Rangnick insists that every outfield Red Devil will be under scrutiny this summer.
The likes of Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani are already leaving on free transfers, with Paul Pogba and Juan Mata set to follow.
But teammates on secure contracts will also be fighting for their futures between now and the end of the season.
Rangnick admits David De Gea is the only player safe from the spotlight right now.
But even he may be dragged into the firing line once Ten Hag takes charge.

Rangnick told Sky Sports: “I think apart from the goalkeeping, we need to make sure that we improve the squad in all areas.
“To bring in players who really help the team to get better – again, it’s about the profile.
“There might be a couple of players – and I have already named those players to the board – that independent from formation, from style of football, and independent from a new manager, that could be of interest for a club like United.
“But in general, if you look at the size of the way the team needs to be rebuilt, I mean, it’s not enough to bring in three or four new players.
“It will be more, bearing in mind how many players will no longer be here with the contracts running out.”
On De Gea’s long-term future, Rangnick added: “This is also something that needs to be taken into consideration when you know who your manager is.
“I mean, for me, David has been outstanding since I arrived. But if you look into Manchester City and Liverpool and how they’ve invested in goalkeepers…
“But again, this is an issue we can only speak about when we know who will be the new manager and how does he want to play.”
