Option 2 is the best option. Ragnick is never a good long term appointment, but we could definitely use him to lay the groundwork for summer.I think United could convince him to move now. There's no other big job on the table this summer apart from maybe Juve. Tell him that it's now or never, he considers that he might not have any other big project available anyway in the summer, and I think he'd give it serious consideration.
For such a big club we don't half act small time these days. Get somebody with some passion for United and a good football understanding (Fergie?) to have a chat with him. I'm sure we could do this now, I don't buy all this stuff about wanting to stay at Ajax. He's won the league already before. We're in the CL kncokouts if he guides us through two winnable games and he actually has a squad capable of winning. He's got a huge opportunity here.
Option 2 is hire Ragnick, instill some of the same philosophies, move him into a DoF type role in the summer and got ETH then.
Also there is a possibility of Gallardo. His contract expires December 31st.
