Fabrizio Romano confirms Manchester United pursuing transfer king Michael Edwards – Man United News And Transfer News

It’s no secret that Manchester United have struggled within the switch market lately. They’ve paid over the chances for gamers, purchased the fallacious gamers, been unable to shut offers for the very best gamers, taken too lengthy in negotiations and been unable to maneuver gamers on at a good value, or at instances, in any respect.

Recruitment has been a shambles.

CEO Richard Arnold’s current admission that United have “f—ing burned by money” remains to be ringing within the ears of many.

However all that may very well be about to vary as United shut in on what may very well be a very powerful signing they may make: former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards.

Edwards lately left Anfield after 10 years on the membership during which he oversaw probably the most profitable rebuilds lately within the Premier League. Gamers equivalent to Virgil van Dijk, Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mané, Fabinho, Allison, Luis Diaz and Andrew Robertson all got here by, many at a cut price value.

This has led to each Chelsea, who wish to substitute the departing Marina Granovskaia, and United to indicate an curiosity in Edwards’ providers.

“United are within the midst of revamping their recruitment set-up, work which is being led by soccer director John Murtough,” The Mail says.

“And a number of sources declare that Edwards is of curiosity to the new-look Previous Trafford regime as they proceed to overtake their switch group.

“Along with Edwards, it’s understood Brentford’s director of recruitment Lee Dykes and Middlesbrough’s head of soccer Kieron Scott even have admirers at Previous Trafford.”

Switch knowledgeable Fabrizio Romano confirms The Mail’s story.

“Ready for Michael Edwards to decide on his future, Brentford’s extremely rated head of recruitment Lee Dykes is one among some names into consideration at Manchester United,” the guru tweeted.

United have already launched six senior gamers whose contracts have expired this summer time, with one other six reported to be up on the market. But not a single incoming switch has been made.

If any membership wants a person with Edwards’ pedigree, it’s Manchester United. And quick.
