Manchester United will designate its first football director & # 39; after the frustrating window of summer transfer of José Mourinho.

Mourinho was very eloquent in his views on the club's business during the summer, and it is reported that United will now make big changes behind the scenes.

The Guardian writes that, once the current restructuring of the club and the expansion of the facilities are completed, United will review its transfer policy below.

The changes would allow a more agile recruitment process in which the manager assumes a different role, lending himself to the comments made by Mourinho on Friday night.

Before the first game of his team in the Premier League, the Portuguese insisted that he and his contemporaries should be called "head coaches" instead of "managers", a statement that now seems quite relevant.

"I had my plans for many months and I find the market closed in a situation where I did not think I would be," he said. "I think football is changing and managers should be called coaches in chief."

At present, soccer considers that the managers advance quickly, and it is understood that United believes that it will be beneficial to create a more fluid recruitment process with a football director at the helm.

Mourinho's relationship with executive vice president Ed Woodward has fractured, and the new plans at United would be an attempt to close the gap between them.

It is understood that Woodward would still have a key role in buying and selling players despite the new role, while Mourinho, or whoever is in charge at Old Trafford, would also be very involved.

United only needs to see its closest rivals, Manchester City, as an example of how the football director's role can function successfully, with Txiki Begiristain widely considered a success in the Etihad.

His formal title is & # 39; sports director & # 39 ;, and a fundamental part of his role is to identify new players and new managers, as he did with Pep Guardiola in 2016.
