Manchester United consider changing approach to compete with rivals for young talent

Manchester United are going through change at the moment with Sir Jim Ratcliffe set to arrive as 25% stake shareholder.

The news broke during the week that vice executive Richard Arnold will be leaving the club after 16-years at the end of the year. It was never believed that Ratcliffe wanted to work with him in the first place and he was rightly sent his marching orders.

It goes without saying that Ratcliffe has a lot to address at Old Trafford. Fans are eager to see the recruitment team reshuffled and improved after years of below-par recruitment.

The Reds need to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Man City when it comes to the scouting of young players, especially in South America, and reports suggest the club feels they are way behind in locating highly-rated youngsters.

According to The Sun, as cited by The Mirror, United have enlisted LA firm Pace to find an ‘emerging talent scout’ with ambitions to challenge the two Premier League rivals when it comes to unearthing the next talents across the world.

The goal is to develop a free-flowing transfer system to identity young players and it sounds like some progress is being made by the club noting that they’ve been getting it wrong for years.

United are also being linked with former AS Monaco transfer guru Paul Mitchell. Someone like that would really help drive a new recruitment team at the club.
