Ed Woodward 'to remain in charge of Manchester United transfers'

:Headline: Ed Woodward 'to remain in charge of Manchester United transfers':
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.

The Red Devils are understood to have considered a number of candidates for the newly-created role, including former players Edwin van der Sar, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra.

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.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant Mike Phelan will also be involved in the process, alongside head of corporate affairs Matt Judge.

The 20-time champions of England yesterday brought in Daniel James from Swansea City as their first summer signing and are expected to mainly target young players with potential.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one such player thought to be on their radar, although United have also been linked with big-money bids for Kalidou Koulibaly and Antoine Griezmann. body check tags ::
