Manchester United is "seriously considering" the appointment Rio Ferdinand as a new sports director.
As part of their desperation to name absolutely anyone who played for, coached or watched United on television at any point in their lives, Ferdinand was identified as a potential sports director.
The Daily Mail says his "history of the United States and the ensuing business experience that includes the clothing company and restaurant" appeals to Executive Vice President Ed Woodward. And the line will never be cheerful. They name someone who oversees their transfers on the grounds that they can sell designer hats.
Woodward is said to "seriously consider" Ferdinand as a candidate, while the Glazer family "tried to bring him back to the club earlier" as a meeting room.
Ferdinand's "personal circumstances made it unusable", but Woodward has since "opened the debate" to see if Ferdinand will be open to this possibility.
Analytical approach 40 years old BT Sport Pundit also impressed the club and saw him in a role that would "manage the transfer strategy and oversee the negotiations while being in line with the manager".
The United States is trying to emulate the success of the Champions League finalists. The Dutch club has appointed former players Edwin van der Sara and Marc Overmars to a high position despite a lack of previous experience. So United wants to use her "rich heritage" to bring not only Ferdinand, but perhaps Darren Fletcher alongside Mike Phellan as Technical Director.
