Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is set to remain in-charge of the transfer dealings, according to the reports.
There have been plenty of news and reports about Manchester United looking to sign a new ‘technical director’ or a ‘sporting director’ in the next few weeks who would look after the scouting and transfer dealings at the Old Trafford.
But according to the Dailymail, Woodward was unsatisfied with the contenders for the position and is set to remain in-charge.
As per Dailymail:
“The £18million deal to take Daniel James to Old Trafford from Swansea was negotiated by Matt Judge, United’s head of corporate affairs, with Woodward signing off on terms.
“The duo have overseen recruitment for the past few windows.”
The reports also say that the duo of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan will have the power to veto any signing they want.
Manchester United are interested in Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka who are set to cost around £80m and £60m respectively.
The last few years have seen us complete various dodgy signings and extend deal for players that aren’t good enough to start for mid-table clubs, let alone Manchester United.
More than anything else, the Red Devils are in a need of someone who understands football and takes decision accordingly.
But if this latest report is true, we are probably set to for another failed campaign.
