EPL: Sir Alex Ferguson advises Manchester United on new appointment

Manchester United Transfer News Ole Solskjaer ready to offer £90 million for Premier league defender

Manchester United Transfer News Ole Solskjaer ready to offer £90 million for Premier league defender

The club was expected to have appointed a Director of Football by now to oversee the transfer and recruitment process but that is yet to occur.

Walsh played a big role in Leicester winning the Premier League in 2015/16.

Walsh was credited for the signings of N'Golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez the Forces, both of whom were later sold for substantial profits.

So if United have a miraculous turnaround this coming season, with their young stars taking the club back to their normal place in the top four, then you can thank their neighbours at the Etihad.

And according to Sky Sports News, former manager Ferguson - who won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues with United - recommended Walsh for the consultancy role. Woodward does not agree.

And Woodward has reportedly rejected Ferguson's advice as he is determined to bring in an ex-Manchester United player.

In another follow-up tweet , she added: "Never, ever would I intentionally try to offend anyone like that. I never noticed the planes in the background and that is the truth.

Maguire has emerged as a prime target in recent weeks with the Evening Standard reporting last week that Solskjaer has instructed executive vice chairman Ed Woodward to do all he can to lure the England worldwide to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are looking to overhaul their talent spotting and talent development strategy having failed to utilize the transfer windows.

"He would rather see a United old boy coming back to fulfil that role".

Meanwhile former players Edwin van der Sar, Darren Fletcher and Rio Ferdinand, as well as former Spurs recruitment chief Paul Mitchell, have also been linked with a potential director's role at the club.

Extraordinary. Woodward, someone with very little experience in football, thinks he knows better than the most successful figure in Manchester United's history.

In a bid to keep the defender at the King Power, the Foxes are understood to have put a £90 million price tag on his head, as per the report, but that does not appear to have seen off all interested parties.
