Manchester United bosses are planning a boardroom restructure to improve the clubs fortunes, including pairing Jose Mourinho with a Director of Football, according to Football Insider.
The report claims that the 20 times Champions of England are confident of securing a deal this month for Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, to be the manager of the club from next season.
The club will then set upon a dramatic restructuring of the clubs transfer policy and recruitment structure, including appointing a director to oversee transfers and the scouting network.
The article claims that United are keen to bring in Atletico Madrid sporting director, Andreas Berta. The Italian has done a similar role at the Spanish club during a time when Atletico have had a fantastic period on the pitch, including the La Liga title and Champions League final in 2014.
Manchester United have been criticised for failing to secure a number of targets over recent seasons, whilst Real Madrid supremo Florentino Perez accused the club of lacking experience.
There is no doubt that Ed Woodward has done a fantastic job commercially for Manchester United, securing record sponsorship deals for the club with the likes of Chevrolet and adidas. However the executive vice chairman has been accused of being inexperienced on the football side of things.
The appointment of a technical director to work alongside Mourinho, would be a similar set up to that at neighbours Manchester City, who have former Barcelona man, Txiki Begiristan.
