Manchester United eye Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber to their next sporting director shortlist

Manchester United are targeting Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber to be their next director of football.

It is understood that the Red Devils are looking at building a committee of ex-players to help recruit players and Webber is seen as someone who could oversee that strategy.
