Manchester United Executive Vice Chairman, Ed Woodward, is looking to appoint a Director of Football for the club this summer, according to a recent report by The Telegraph.
United have had reasonable success in its transfer dealings over the past few years, and many believed we no longer needed a Director of Football, but Ed Woodward is still keen to get one for the club, who can take care of such responsibilities as recruitment, developing women’s football, and Carrington.
At the moment, Atletico Madrid’s Andrea Berta, Antero Henrique, formerly of Paris Saint-Germain, and Juventus’s Paratici have been identified as the possible employees for the vacant role.
Whoever gets the job in the end will be expected to work with Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, and not be solely in charge of player recruitment.
United have been trying to sign Jadon Sancho for months without success, so the next Director of Football is expected to start with helping the club secure the 20 year old from Borussia Dortmund.
