United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is said to be seeking extra transfer help for Jose Mourinho
RB Leipzig head of recruitment and development Paul Mitchell has refused to rule out the possibility of him taking up a similar role at Manchester United.
Mitchell, 37, made the move to the Bundesliga side in February after a successful spell with Tottenham.
Reports have suggested that the Red Devils are on the lookout for an individual to help manager Jose Mourinho with player recruitment.
Mourinho is said to have been left disappointed in the summer after the club failed to back him in the transfer market, with the United boss keen to add a new centre-back to his squad.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is the man who is often left to work on transfers with Mourinho, but in recent weeks it’s been claimed that Leipzig head of recruitment Mitchell, who was born in Manchester, could be on United’s radar.
