The Scot is keen to overhaul the network at the club.
Following Manchester United’s disappointing transfer window negotiations this summer, manager David Moyes plans to overhaul the scouting network at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Express.
Having signed Uruguay under-20 international Guillermo Varela early on, the Red Devils then struggled to acquire any new talent and only secured Marouane Fellaini from Everton in a £27.5m deal, late on deadline day.
Failed attempts to sign Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Leighton Baines and Ander Herrera only served to undermine Moyes and new chief executive Ed Woodward’s handle on transfer proceedings.
As a result, the Scot wants to address these issues and bring in scouts that the 50-year-old worked with at Goodison Park.
The first new arrival would be chief scout Robbie Cooke – meaning United’s current holder of that position, Jim Lawlor, looks unsafe in the position.
The Premier League champions did manage to hold onto forward Wayne Rooney, despite repeated attempts by Chelsea to sign the England international, which helped Moyes and Woodward rebuild some of their reputation.
Apart from Rooney’s commitment to the club and the arrival of Fellaini, dealings were seen in general as a disaster, with both the manager’s former side and Athletic Bilbao slamming United for the way they went about trying to buy the clubs’ players.
This coupled with an average start from the English title holders – four points from a possible nine so far and defeat to rivals Liverpool in the club’s last league match – means Moyes is already learning that life at the top is far from easy.
