According to reports, Manchester United have expanded the club’s scouting network in the hope of securing the best talents in England.
The club is keen to have the ‘next Marcus Rashford’, and have moved to expand their scouting network in London in the hope of signing top talents.
As a result, United have brought in two scouts to focus on the capital in the hope that they can continue to bring the best young talent to the club, as United aim to get back to the top.
United have an extensive scouting network across the whole world who report back to club chiefs including Football director John Murtough and technical director Darren Fletcher.
In a fans’ forum meeting held in April, Murtogh discussed the expansion of the scouting network and said: “The north-west area remains important to ensure we convince the next Marcus [Rashford], Jesse [Lingard] or Mason [Greenwood] to play for United.
“The scouting network across the rest of the UK have also been strengthened. Recently, two new scouts have came on board to focus on the London area.
“The club’s tradition of looking at bringing in the best 17-18 year olds from across the world will also continue. The scouting team work closely with Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] to produce options for consideration based on the type of profile which Ole feels that the team needs.
“Ole has a veto, because as a club we will not sign a player that a manager doesn’t want.”
