Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaerdoesn’t want a director of football at Old Trafford, reports say. The club’s recruitment has improved since the Norwegian replaced Jose Mourinho at the club. But, despite that, things are from perfect at the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United have been linked with a variety of director of football candidates in recent times.
Lille chief Luis Campos has emerged as a potential target, while links to Paul Mitchell and Edwin van der Sar have also arisen.
United currently rely on Ed Woodward to oversee transfer activity and Matt Judge for negotiations, though that’s been a mixed blueprint in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
And The Athletic say Solskjaer doesn’t want the club to appoint a director of football.
His signings have been hit and miss since he took over two years ago.
Daniel James was the first signing of the Solskjaer era and initially took to life at the club like a duck to water following his arrival from Championship side Swansea.
