Eddie Howe was captured crying after been sack today…

Man Utd have ‘agreed’ a deal to bring Dan Ashworth in from Newcastle as their new sporting director, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

The Red Devils are undergoing a summer of change after Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS completed a deal to buy 27.7 per cent of the Premier League club from the Glazer family.

Omar Berrada has joined as their new CEO from arch-rivals Man City, while Jason Wilcox arrived towards the end of last season as new Man Utd technical director.

Ashworth has always been Ratcliffe’s top target as sporting director and now it looks like he has finally landed his man after months of negotiations.

It had been previously reported that Newcastle wanted around £20m from Man Utd but the Red Devils were only willing to pay half that amount in order to release Ashworth.

But now The Athletic journalist Ornstein insists that Man Utd ‘have agreed a deal’ to appoint Ashworth as their new sporting director after being ‘delayed by the clubs struggling to compromise on a compensation package’.
