Man United want 2008 Champions League winner to return as Director of Football: report

Manchester United Football Club find themselves in all sorts of problems at the moment, with the Red Devils struggling both on and off the field.

Amongst the fans, one real area of concern has been United’s dealings in the transfer market. Only three players were signed while several were let go. Before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival, there was a real issue with overpaying for bang-average superstars whose careers were winding down.
