United Search For New Scouts

United Search For New Scouts

Manchester United are advertising for new scouts to help them recruit ‘world class’ talents in both Spain and France.

Old Trafford chiefs are conducting a major overhaul of their recruitment operations, which is expected to see them recruit a technical director in the coming weeks ahead.

The Red Devils, however, are understood to feel they are also lagging behind when it comes to identifying fledgeling talents in La Liga and Ligue 1.

United posted on the club’s official website the successful candidates will be tasked with identifying ‘world class and emerging talent for the club, ensuring a talent pipeline and a world-class first-team squad’.

The new scouts in France and Spain will report to United’s head of scouting operations, Steve Brown, in a bid to make up lost ground on some of their Premier League rivals.

United are seemingly heading in another direction and want to sign younger players with the potential to improve, rather than the failed big-money signings of recent years.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already spent £75m this summer buying winger Daniel James from Swansea and £50m right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
