Manchester United could be on the brink of appointing a replacement for the club’s current head of recruitment Ed Woodward after his dismal performance.

For months on end Old Trafford has raged fiercely. The fans on the stands have chanted and voiced their dismay. With clenched fists and roaring voices they have blamed all of Manchester United’s struggles on one man and the club’s owners.

No it is not the current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It is the man working behind the scenes to appease the Red Devils’ owners Ed Woodward.

The fans’ hatred for the current United chief accumulated in a violent and unnecessary protest in front of Ed Woodward’s house.

The hostile atmosphere around the club has gotten so bad there is only so much Ed Woodward can stand. His position is not merely under scrutiny but it has made his personal life volatile too.

It means that United will surely be on the lookout for a new man to appoint in place of Woodward very shortly.

The Red Devils have been criticised for their recruitment in the past couple of seasons since Ed Woodward took the reigns at the club. And undoubtedly the United chief has not brought the success which is expected at Old Trafford. United’s financial handling and negotiations have been a mess with hefty wages and fees paid for players who do not warrant it.

Now it seems the club may have found the perfect replacement for Ed Woodward in former PSG director of football Antero Henrique.

Antero Henrique was crucial and responsible for bringing the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves to the French capital.

He has a clear eye for talent and shrewd business having conducted some of the major transfers in football of the sport’s recent history.

And according to the French outlet L’Equipe via Sports Bible Manchester United are in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Antero Henrique.

His arrival could be of huge importance. Henrique has the potential to be able to return the Red Devils back where they belong.
