Andy O’Boyle has quit the Premier League, where he was head of elite performance, to work at rebuilding the Old Trafford squad.
Meanwhile, the club are very close to striking a deal to sign sought-after forward Darwin Nunez, according to reports from Portugal.
The Benfica talisman was in red hot form last season and United are said to be the front runners in luring the Uruguayan.
Meanwhile, the club are also interested in a deal for Leeds winger Raphinha, who is said to be more keen on a move to United than he is Barcelona.
And the Red Devils are said to be considering activating Arnaut Danjuma’s £38m release clause.
