Man Utd Consider Shock Move For Ex-Liverpool Chief Edwards
Former Liverpool sports chief Michael Edwards is being linked with a shock move to Manchester United.
He departed Liverpool at the end of the season and the Daily Mail says United are now hoping to tempt him to Manchester, with a view to taking up a role in their ongoing recruitment reshuffle.
Technical director John Murtough has been seeking a sporting director and AS Monaco's Paul Mitchell has been mentioned.
Edwards is now under consideration, though he has also been linked with a move to France where Nice have been mentioned as a destination.
As well as supplementing Jurgen Klopp's squad with high-quality signings, Edwards has also earned a reputation at Liverpool for constantly selling players well above their market value.
Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez moves to Barcelona are the headline acts, but a variety of deals have ensured the club have been able to operate free from the burden of massive losses.
