Manchester United are set to appoint three of our club legends in a three-man transfer committee as per latest reports in Metro.
Manchester United have made a number of poor transfer deals in the last few windows with Alexis Sanchez obviously taking the cake.
Even the likes of Eric Bailly and Fred have failed to live up to the expectations which has prompted the question of the need of a Sporting Director in the backroom.
While Jose Mourinho was completely against the idea of hiring a Sporting Director, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has talked about the needs of a Sporting Director in the modern Football.
Ed Woodward, reportedly, has already held talks with Darren Fletcher who is set to head the three-man committee. There have been ongoing talks with Rio Ferdinand who still hasn’t confirmed his involvement.
Paul Scholes, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra have also been involved in the discussions and at least two of these guys could be set to complete the committee headed by Darren Fletcher.
It’s been reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will still have the final say in the transfer matters but Darren Fletcher and co. will have the job of identifying players who are fit for “Man Utd DNA”.
Darren Fletcher has already reccomended the signing of Nathan Collins from Stoke City which should be completed in the coming days.
Gary Neville, of course isn’t happy with this decision and here’s what he had to say on the matter:
‘How can it be that four players that have never been businessmen, never been sporting directors, are put forward for this difficult role at the biggest club in the world? It’s a shambles.’
Do you think it’s a good decisions to bring back our legends in some capacity or do you agree with Gary Neville?
