New era for Manchester United after this swap deal

Manchester United

Dan Ashworth most recently worked as sporting director for Premier League club Newcastle United. He also previously also worked as technical director for West Bromwich Albion and Brighton and Hove Albion. He was also FA director of elite development. Since Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS group took over there have been talks about a total change at the club. Manchester United are in their transition period and the owners believe the change has to start from the backrooms. Manchester United’s pursuit of a sporting director indicates their focus on building a strong backroom operation. This can be the beginning of the New era every fan wanted.

Ashworth’s departure from Newcastle would be seen as a blow to their project, as he was a key figure in building their club infrastructure. Newcastle United who were taken over by Saudi owners recently took the Premier League by storm. Not only they did good in the league they also had a pretty good Champions league campaign. They beat French Champions Paris Saint Germain 4-0 on their homeground.

Is the New era really here?

Manchester United’s pursuit of Ashworth highlights their ambition to return to former glories and become one of the biggest projects in world football. They have also made it clear to go big in transfer window this summer. Manchester United stated their almost all of their squad members are on the market and open to being sold. Youngsters like Garnacho, Mainoo are getting consistent gametime this season to develop into excellent players.

Manchester United who will be ending this season on a disappointing note will hope to achieve more next season. However their season is still not over due as they have a FA cup final against Chelsea after beating Liverpool in a thrilling clash. The negotiations between Newcastle and Manchester United will determine the compensation and timing for Ashworth’s move.
