After so many talks from fans and pundits about his unimpressive way of handling player’s contract and recruitment, Manchester United Vice-chairman Ed Woodward has decided to step down from being the club’s sporting director.
Though the chief hasn’t made any official declaration about his decision to step down, reports claimed that the Red Devils are presently in search of his replacement.
According to Diario Gol, the Red Devils have spotted their searchlight on Atletico’s sporting director Andrea Berta, who joined the Spanish Capital from Serie A side Genoa in 2013.
Since Berta became the club’s director, he has brought in top players including Diego Costa, Antoine Griezmann and Jan Oblak.
Apart from getting top players into Diego Simeone’s team, Berta also ensured that they extend their contract with the team for another long period.
Should United get the experienced transfer guru, Mourinho would be very glad to have him at Old Trafford. This is because both parties shared great relationships as he was recommended by the Portuguese manager.
Despite his unimpressive record when it comes to contractual issues, Woodward has helped the club generate huge amounts of money during his tenure at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, United are also keeping close tabs on Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, who has been awesome with the Old Lady.
Having moved to the Turin outfits, Paratici has completed Leonardo Bonucci, Arturo Vidal, Paul Pogba, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Ronaldo.
