Manchester United’s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson is being linked with a shock move to Swansea City.
Having served as the manager of the Old Trafford club for 26 years and won numerous titles in the process, Sir Alex is currently working as a member of Manchester United’s Football Club Board.
But if recent reports by the Glasgow Live are to be believed, Sir Alex is not happy with life at his beloved club, due to the fact that his suggestions and experience is being completely ignored and misused by the club’s Main Board.
Current boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly doing his best to try and increase Sir Alex’s influence at Manchester United,as he believes the Scot can serve the club, and the team, in a much better way than being just the Global Ambassador.

However, the Portuguese tactician’s efforts may turn out to be for naught, as Ferguson may already be considering leaving the club he has worked with for more than two decades.
According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, Sir Alex is a 5/2 bet to join Premier League outfit Swansea City in an advisory role.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson was quoted as saying: “It’s been a roller coaster few weeks for Swansea fans, but the former Man United maestro helping call the shots would surely top the lot.”
Fergie has already begun influencing the Welsh club, via Swansea’s new manager Bob Bradley. The American has revealed that the former United boss has been a huge influence on him, and he will now try and emulate the same success at the Liberty Stadium as the Scot did in Manchester.
“I have always talked about when I was the U.S. national team coach, what it was like when I’d go to Carrington (Man United training ground),” said Bradley, in an interview with NBC.
“What always struck me was how with all the great players and all the success, how Sir Alex’s personality was all over every part of the club. He knew everyone’s name and how he would joke with people in the kitchen.”
