This has been in the works for a while now, and it seems Manchester United will now get the deal over the line, and we just might see a sporting director at Old Trafford.
Despite spending millions in player acquisition, United has always been criticized for making wrong additions. This is something many believe a sporting director would sort out.
According to Foot Mercato, the club's hierarchy are close to agreeing terms with Antero Henrique, who most recently occupied the same role at Paris Saint-Germain.
The 51-year-old was involved in the signings of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar during his first summer at Parc des Princes.
Henrique earned his chance with the French giants after a successful spell with Porto in his homeland.
