Manchester United are working to see that they make the most use of the summer transfer window. The club is looking at appointing Andy O’Boyle as their deputy director of football, according to the Daily Mail.
The Irishman joined Liverpool in 2011, working as head of elite fitness before being promoted to first-team fitness coach in 2015.
O’Boyle left Anfield in 2017 to become the ‘Head of Elite Performance’ at the Premier League — the job he continues to hold to this day.
The Red Devils are looking to appoint someone to help director of football John Murtough ahead of what promises to be a crucial transfer window.
Paul Merson backs Man United to sign Declan Rice
Speaking to the Daily Star, Paul Merson said: “Declan Rice should strike while the iron is hot and leave West Ham this summer.
“He’s taken his game to another level this season and is playing like N’Golo Kante now, affecting things at both ends of the pitch.
“I would be surprised if Rice is playing for West Ham next season. They have completely punched above their weight for months.
“Where could he go? Manchester United would be a good move, but will they get in the Champions League? That’s where Rice wants to play.”
The Red Devils are currently sixth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with nine games left to play this season.
Rice continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford although David Moyes has recently suggested that the midfielder would cost more than £100 million.
