Man United set to hire Juventus sporting director and restructure the club

- Man United are ready to restructure their club following the poor run of results this season

- They have won five matches out of 11 so far this season as they rank eighth on the table

- The club has now contacted former Juventus CEO and current sporting director over possible move to Old Trafford

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly in talks with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici over a possible move to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have struggled since the start of this season with the club currently ranked eighth on the table.

They ended their four games without a win in their 3-2 victory over Newcastle United last weekend - a result many thought bought Jose Mourinho more time at the club.

According to Independent, United's chief executive Ed Woodward is ready to put in motion plans to re-model their football structure.

A decision that might hurt Mourinho's future at the club when full operation is put in place as the vice chairman was said to have spoken to former Juve's CEO Giuseppe Marotta in that effect.

The publication further reports that the club are trying to introduce a more modern continental model that didn’t place such prominence and importance on a single manager at the top.

Along those lines, United have been interested in putting in place a full technical staff, as opposed to just a director of football, and it is believed that bringing the two will appeal to United.

While some are already mentioning how it could be similar to how neighbours Manchester City effectively imported the Barcelona technical structure in the last few years.

Legit.ng previously reported that Man United have denied media reports claiming coach Jose Mourinho will be sacked regardless his side's Premier League outcome against Newcastle United.

The Red Devils have struggled since the start of the current season with just four wins all ten matches in all competitions this term.

With the recent outcomes, United are tenth on the EPL table while their goalless draw against Valencia in the Champions League pushed them two points behind Juventus on Group H table.
