Manchester United Tipped To Make World Class Appointment With Key Personnel Set To Depart

Manchester United have been doing well after a sloppy start in the new 2020/2021 season. Over the weekend they got their first home win against West Bromwich thanks to Bruno Fernandez converted penalty. Other than the heroics on the pitch, Manchester United are touted to make a major appointment before the summer transfer window. Manchester United have been in the hunt for a director of football since Jose Mourinho's tenure as the manager. Ed Woodward and Matt Judge have always been in charge of making signings, with their work being rated below par. But it seems like their search for one qualified director of football is coming to an end.

According to The Sun reports Everton's Marcel Brands has been earmarked to take over the role of Director of football at Old Trafford, with his deal at the Toffees coming to an end next summer. The qualities in search of world class talents is visible with from how he backed manager Carlo Ancelotti was backed with big-name signings like James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure during the summer.

It is believed tha Brands will willingly accept the role if United approach him. The same report suggests that current executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward could depart the club if Brands is appointed. This will be a huge boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Brands will change the recruitment strategy like how he did at Everton.
