Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has continued his backroom rejig, turning his attentions to the scouting department in particular.
The club, the board in particular, have been heavily criticised not just for their footballing decisions but also for their inability to spot talent despite an overstocked scouting department.
United have spent close to the amount Manchester City with around £800m yet their fierce rivals are miles ahead of them, proving it’s not the amount spent but rather how it’s spent.
To make matters worse, despite all the spending, Solskjaer is still starting his own revolution, meaning even more spending is on it’s way.
The squad is also in overall terrible shape and lacking depth which has shown so far with the season overall being rather inconsistent.
According to the Sun, Solskjaer has appointed Red Devils’ scout Simon Wells, who will directly report to him after the club’s permission, as the man to personally look at his transfer targets.
This direct line could improve results in the transfer market though it would still all depend on the board approving signings.
It’s likely this new setup will end any conversation over a director of football being hired which is news that will probably upset a host of fans.
