The transfer situation at Manchester United has reached borderline frustration as the club has been unable to make any big name signings so far. There has been a sense of believe that the club needs to restructure its transfer hierarchy.
According to Sky Sports, Manchester United are likely to appoint former Leicester scouting chief Steve Walsh in a consultant role. The report claims that United legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson is the one pushing for his appointment.
United have been on the lookout for a Director of Football in the past few weeks. Club chief Ed Woodward wants a former player for the role and the likes of Rio Ferdinand and Darren Fletcher have been linked to the position.
However, Ferguson’s advice to the club is to bring Walsh who was released by Everton last season.
Walsh has an impressive résumé as he was the mastermind behind the raft of signings that propelled Leicester to a Premier League triumph in the 2015/2016 season.
He was the man behind the signings of Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante who were later sold for huge profits.
Walsh is the ideal candidate for the job as United needs a football director that understands the role rather than appointing an ex player.
