Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will reportedly remain in charge of the club’s transfer plans after deciding against appointing a sporting director.
Ed Woodward will remain in charge of Manchester United‘s transfer policy after the club reportedly decided against appointing a sporting director.
United’s dealings in the transfer market have been criticised in recent years, and they had been keen to overhaul the structure at Old Trafford in a bid to emulate the success currently being enjoyed by Manchester City and Liverpool.
Juventus chief Fabio Paratici is another name thought to have been on their shortlist, but the Daily Mail claims that Ed Woodward has failed to identify a suitable candidate.
The decision means that United’s executive vice-chairman will remain in charge of the club’s transfer plans and will likely oversee a summer overhaul at Old Trafford.
