comment How to convince/prove my manager that a rewriting is needed rather than a refactoring
It all comes down to the developers. A total rewrite can work if the developers know exactly what to do and can do it in a practical time scale. Refactoring can also work on the same basis. However I've seen far more code messes created by bad or aborted refactoring because the developers didn't have the time or self discipline. Self discipline is the is the one key factor when refactoring. Too many programmers don't have it.
