United have a secret weapon to blow up the market

John Murtough was recently appointed director of football for the Red Devils, who are confident he will be far more effective than Woodward on the market.


On March 10, Manchester United announced a double signing. They were neither Haaland, nor Sancho, nor Varane ..., if not the men in charge of getting them to Old Trafford. John Murtough was appointed director of football for the club and landed in the hands of Darren Fletcher, new technical director. Murtough (48 years old) was until now director of football development of the entity and happens to occupy a new position with which the club hopes to stop losing battles in the offices when the market windows are opened.

Ed Woodward, executive vice president, oversaw the club's operations. Murtough will have to answer to him, but it will be the former head of the Mancunian quarry who will make the transfer decisions. The failure in the 'Sancho case' this past summer was the last straw for doubts in this area for Woodward, who has never convinced in this regard since he joined the club shortly after Alex Ferguson's retirement. . Coming from the world of the economy, without previous football baggage, has been a must that he has not managed to bury. "It does not come from the world of football", Patrice Evra pointed out, critically, last year.

Murtough, for his part, has played a key role in both relaunching United women's football and changing the transfer policy at the quarry. In this last field, the globalization that has been applied in the pre-Brexit era stands out, with young incorporations from different parts of the globe. Coming from the hand of David Moyes in 2013, 'The Fixer' (a kind of problem solver), as described in a Goal article, becomes the main protagonist for next summer. Thus, from the Mirror they understand that their arrival can increase the possibilities of the Red Devils to get hold of four old wishes. Four dreams that if turned into reality would blow up the market: Dybala, Ramos, Varane and Haaland.

White defense

In all cases they are footballers with a cloudy future. The Madrid couple is alert to the white team. Varane meditates a change of scene and the club will hear offers for him (contract ends in 2022), while the renewal of the camero remains at a standstill. The Frenchman was already a priority objective in 2018, but this year it seems that they will return to the load and the situation is more favorable than in the past. While the captain has already received a powerful offer from the Red Devils that he considered accepting, as he recognized in 2016. Like his partner, now the scale could have different weights ... 444 444Dybala and Haaland

And if the defenders have been linked repeatedly with United, Dybala and Haaland have experienced a similar situation. The Argentine was close to leaving Turin last season, before Bruno Fernandes became Solskjaer's X Factor, but at the time he was an undisputed star at Juve (last season he was named best player in Serie A). However, his renewal (like Varane, he ends his contract in 2022) is stagnant and his departure is the meat of constant rumor (see the possible exchange with Griezmann) .

While Haaland is as much the club's dream as the coach's. The Dortmund striker shares a common past with Solskjaer (Molde) and in Manchester they hope that this trick will be enough to win the tremendous bid in which City, Chelsea or Real Madrid participate. The latter would be the most powerful operation in the economic ones. Be that as it may, Murtough has a lot of open fronts.
