Manchester United Director John Murtough Has Stepped Down

John Murtough has stepped down from his role as director at the football club and is set to leave by the end of the week. The former Everton director has been at the club since the year after Sir Alex Ferguson left, coming in with then manager David Moyes.

Manchester United are having a complete reshuffle behind the scenes when it comes to personnel, and Murtough is the next example of INEOS wanting to bring in a new guard to take the club forward. Omar Berrada has already been appointed as CEO at the club, with more appointments expected to happen in the coming weeks.

Murtough Set To Leave:

As reported by David Ornstein, Manchester United director John Murtough is set to leave the club at the end of the week. United are confident of appointing Jason Wilcox from Southampton, in a deal that could be confirmed soon if United can reach an agreement with the Championship club on compensation.

Murtough is one of a number of staff behind the scenes to depart from Old Trafford since the arrival of INEOS, with former CEO Richard Arnold already leaving the club in recent months. The Reds are awaiting the end of Berrada’s gardening leave from Manchester City before he can begin work.

Dan Ashworth’s move from Newcastle United remains ongoing, with United currently unwilling to pay the £20m asking price the Geordie club are looking for. A fee of around £10m is anticipated to be what Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his group are willing to pay, but the two clubs are now closer to reaching a formal agreement as of yet.

Wilcox and Berrada are expected to take charge of negotiations this summer when it comes to transfers, with the club from Manchester likely to have more funds readily available than ever before. Darren Fletcher remains the technical director at the moment, but he is expected to take on a different role in the coming months.
