Days after the statement signing of former Man City chief Omar Berrada as CEO of Manchester United, INEOS are expected to make more big changes.

The Red Devils are reportedly looking to hire a new sporting director, head of recruitment and technical chief scout.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United have also sacked football negotiations manager Sam Barnett, who joined the recruitment team in 2020.

It is also expected that – a week after he was present at a series of important meetings between INEOS and United fansJohn Murtough could be replaced as director of football, while the club are also expected to revamp their medical department.

The INEOS ownership would prefer a more experienced director of football, with Newcastle United’s Dan Ashworth top of the list to take over from Murtough.

The new owners are also prioritising a new head of recruitment to address the £1.5 billion spent since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

While the jury remains out on players such as André Onana and Mason Mount, it has been widely argued that Manchester United have been consistently overpaying for players such as Antony and Casemiro.

The overhaul of staff members is expected to finish before the start of the 2023-25 season when new CEO Berrada starts his new role with Manchester United.
