Man United set to hire specialist team to rope in young talent

According to the Athletic (h/t The Sun), Manchester United are planning to organize a specialist team consisting of eight members to scour and rope in young talent.

The report claims that the Red Devils want to avoid the mistakes of the January transfer window, where they missed out on deals for a number of top targets.

In fact, United were forced to sign Odion Ighalo on loan and were so pressed for time that they went through the deal without even subjecting him to a medical, as per the report.

The Athletic (h/t The Sun) has suggested that United want to improve their transfer business and will appoint a team of eight experts to identify and scout talent by analyzing data.

The report further adds that they’ve already begun headhunting for the same.

A club of United’s stature must be the one calling the shots in the transfer window and not resort to desperate last-minute attempts to sign players on loan.
