Man United in special Newcastle scouting mission

Some 35 Manchester United scouts from around the world recently held a series of recruitment meetings, Sources told Football Insider.

The Premier League giants, who drew 0-0 against Newcastle at Old Trafford last month, have invited their entire scouting network.

Members of United’s recruitment team are also believed to have held a number of talks while in Manchester about the club’s short- and long-term transfer plans.

The aim is to bring talent spotters together for a more federated approach to recruiting.

Clubs’ recruitment efforts have been heavily criticized in recent years for their over-reliance on expensive big-name signings, many of whom have failed to deliver consistently.

analyzed from The CIES Football Observatory has found that no team in world football has overspent more on transfers than Manchester United over the past decade, compared to market rates.

The likes of Fred, Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho are often cited as recent examples of players who arrived at Old Trafford with much fanfare but ultimately failed to do so.

The decision to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club he made a name for is also now widely flagged as a blunder, given his recent attacks on the club’s behind-the-scenes methods.

John Murtough is Director of Football who oversees Manchester United’s sporting department.

Meanwhile, Andy Boyle became deputy director of football in May of this year.
