One could be forced to ask if English Premier League outfit Man United are ready for deals in this summer transfer window as they look unready yet.

This is after the Red Devils dropped an advertisement for a scouting role on the club’s website to help them search for players.

It was earlier stressed that the Red Devils will invest in the summer transfer window to equip the squad ahead of next season so as to close the gap to the likes of Liverpool and Man City.

But with the development of the job advertisement, it means they would be hoping for a new scout that will be a major part of the summer transfer window search. Hopefully, this is not too late?

The Red Devils have already identified Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho as a major target with claims that negotiation is already ongoing for the England international while Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is also being mentioned as a transfer wish.

With all of these already happening before the advertisement, commentators opined that the club’s chief Ed Woodward will still be in charge of the recruitment this summer transfer window but a new scout could help make it work much easier.
