Manchester United might have found the perfect director of football candidate in the most unusual place, according to Manchester Evening News.
Due to the chaotic transfer dealings since the departure of manager Sir Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill in 2013, there has been calls in recent times for a director of football at Manchester United.
Current chief executive Ed Woodward has received plenty of criticism over the last few transfer windows for a range of poor signings, delaying moves and not willing to invest.
Plenty of names have been touted for the job with former stars such as Rio Ferdinand, Jap Stam, Patrice Evra, Ediwn Van der Sar and Darren Fletcher.
However, the Manchester Evening News have mentioned a surprising candidate that could be a genius move by the Red Devils.
Their current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Sir Alex never required a director of football and they way the Norweigan is going about his transfer business, nor should he.
The ex-United striker has yet to put a foot wrong in the transfer market with all his singings clearly improving the current United team.
