Manchester United have recently hired two new scouts for the London area as they look to secure the best young talent from around the UK.
In a fans’ forum meeting held in April, director of football John Murtough revealed: “The north-west area remains important to ensure we convince the next Marcus [Rashford], Jesse [Lingard] or Mason [Greenwood] to play for United.
“The scouting network across the rest of the UK has also been strengthened. Recently, two new scouts have come on board to focus on the London area.
“The club’s tradition of looking at bringing in the best 17-18 year olds from across the world will also continue.
“The scouting team works closely with Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] to produce options for consideration based on the type of profile which Ole feels that the team needs.
“Ole has a veto, because as a club we will not sign a player that a manager doesn’t want.”
