Atletico Madrid technical director Andrea Berta is discussing a potential Manchester United move with his family and will make a decision in April, reports Gianluca di Marzio.
The latest point on Jose Mourinho from Di Marzio indicates no deal has been confirmed but that he already feels like a red devil. It’s the closest thing we’ve had to an update on the Mourinho situation in the last week or so now, they really have died down quite significantly.
Di Marzio reports that United want Berta to work with Mourinho at Man United and create a director of football style type of management.
The concept of getting in a director of football is just as important as correctly replacing van Gaal because United desperately need to modernise their management structure.
Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus have one, United should follow suit. It’s about time these rumours existed.
Having flourished under Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid, Berta has had plenty of experience under his belt and Jorge Mendes is the key that link him to Mourinho, so they’ve got a working relationship in that regard as well.
Could Berta become United’s first ever director of football? Di Marzio says that’s 60% likely at this stage.
