Manchester United reach a verbal agreement; must pay £21 million to secure vital signing

According to thefaithfulmufc, INEOS acquired 25% of Manchester United in exchange for sporting control, and the first major signing they plan to make is a sports director. Dan Ashworth, Newcastle United’s sports director, is a target at Old Trafford, and insiders say the Red Devils have even verbally agreed to sign him.

According to Inter Live, Manchester United have reached a verbal agreement with Ashworth, who may attempt to sign Gleison Bremer and Nicolo Barella. The 53-year-old signed Sandro Tonali for the Magpies in the summer but was unable to secure Barella. He may now seek to sign the midfielder if he joins the 20-time English champions.
