The latest on new Man Utd director and Jadon Sancho’s exit

It’s still a work in progress for Manchester United to pick their next sporting director under Sir Jim Ratcliffe. The list of names remains the same as mentioned several times before including Paul Mitchell and people like that, but I think the name of Dan Ashworth is the strongest name and the most appreciated by INEOS.

Still, Newcastle remain convinced that Ashworth is focused their project. He is under contract there, so Newcastle keep playing down the rumours as they want to continue with him. I expect, however, that INEOS will continue to push for Ashworth in the next weeks because he is really the strongest candidate. Then we will see if they want to go for one candidate or try something similar to Chelsea recently, as they hired multiple directors, so let’s see what the structure will be at Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho’s move to Borussia Dortmund is almost completed. On the player’s side it’s been done for ten days now because he wants to go, so it’s just about the final details between the clubs and the green light. It’s at the final stages and then it will be done.
