The big story in the Observer on Sunday centres on Manchester United.

As reported by journalist Jamie Jackson, Man United are gearing up to sign a director of football.

Many fans will see this update as a direct response to what happened in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Jose Mourinho has cut a distressed figure prior to the start of the Premier League season.

The Special One has talked up the challenges facing Man United. Indeed, Mourinho believes his job title should change:

It will be a difficult season for everybody, not just for us. I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in.

It’s the last time I speak about it. It’s over, the market is closed. That’s football management. I think football is changing and managers should be called head coaches.

History at Old Trafford

Manchester United have never had a director of football in the club’s 140-year history.

Sadly the Observer fail to list any potential names to fill that job position at Old Trafford.

While the broadsheet also look into how the appointment will be made, plus they suggest about the director of football will work alongside Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward:

Woodward is still expected to have a key role in recruitment following the appointment of a director of football, with Mourinho and his successors still substantially involved in player recruitment.

A director of football would provide a buffer between the hierarchy and manager with the extra layer of expertise designed to maintain United’s style and ethos. This will allow an instantly recognisable blueprint to identify players and any fresh manager appointment.
