Forward Confirms He’s Leaving His Club – Set To Join Manchester United
Manchester United find themselves in an interesting position, with the Glazer family in the process of receiving bids for England’s most iconic club.
However, it seems the situation hasn’t had much impact on the Red Devils’ performance on the pitch as well as on their plans in the transfer market, for now at least.
The Glazers are considering selling the club they bought in 2005 and have received offers from Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group and Qatari Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani.
But their departure from Old Trafford is no certainty. “If the Glazers don’t get top, top dollar then they aren’t going anywhere,” an insider told Sky Sports.
As such, the business is as usual on the red side of Manchester. Manager Erik ten Hag is focused on getting the best out of his players, who impressed against Barcelona at Camp Nou in the Europa League. Meanwhile, football director John Murtough continues to work on recruitment.
The Premier League giants are signing Gabriele Biancheri from Cardiff City for their academy. The forward has agreed to a four-year contract and has already confirmed he’s leaving the Championship outfit.
According to Fabrizio Romano, United fought off competition from “2-3 English clubs” to secure the highly-rated Biancheri’s services.
And that’s not it with regard to incomings.
United have appointed David Harrison as their new director of football operations. Harrison, who spent 27 years at Everton, will succeed Alan Dawson.
He will report to Murtough and will be in charge of ensuring that United’s football operations run as smoothly and effectively as possible.
