With Jason Wilcox’s pursuit, Manchester United is delivering Man City the ultimate courtesy

As to the article published on Manchester Evening News, appoint all of their employees if you are unable to defeat them. Manchester United is interested in hiring the highly regarded former academy director of the Blues, after the bold selection of Omar Berrada as Chief Executive of Manchester City.

Although no contact has been made, Jason Wilcox is being considered for a top position in United’s recruiting department, and Newcastle’s Dan Ashworth is being considered for the position of new Sporting Director. Wilcox, Ashworth, and Berrada would form a formidable squad with established histories, and their positions would be consistent with those of a top club.

It’s odd to discuss United’s (possible) off-field activities in such a professional manner considering the disastrous choices made since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, but INEOS doesn’t seem to be hanging around after acquiring 25% of the team over the holidays.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, INEOS, and Sir Dave Brailsford will assume responsibility for sports affairs as part of the agreement. From a Red standpoint, their early actions are encouraging, even if the rebuild has a strong sky-blue vibe.

Prior to making any big squad changes, Ratcliffe is clearing his new home by concentrating on important organisational appointments. It’s an indication of the direction and purpose that United has been lacking lately, which has led to shouts like “Old Trafford is falling down.”

United hasn’t looked too far from Old Trafford to rectify the issue. Unquestionably, the acquisition of Berrada from City was a coup, and Wilcox is another prominent figure connected to the Etihad, having managed the successful academy from 2017 to 2023.

In that period, scores of players left the City playing Academy in quest of playing elsewhere, earning hundreds of millions in transfer fees. Players like Phil Foden, Cole Palmer, Rico Lewis, and Oscar Bobb also made the permanent jump to the City first team.
