“I vowed to sign him as my First every signing as this new club’s sporting director. I heard that Chelsea are strongly looking for him but it will be a dream that never comes true for them. United fans will be amazed with the way we will sign him”-Man Utd target Dan Ashworth is ‘ready to upset’ Chelsea after identifying first target

According to reports, Dan Ashworth is poised to make his inaugural signing for Manchester United, aiming for a strategic ‘raid’ on Premier League adversaries Chelsea. This move comes as part of efforts to bolster the club’s recruitment division, following Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s acquisition of a minority 25 percent share in United.With a track record of establishing successful recruitment structures at Newcastle United and Brighton, Ashworth’s expertise has caught the attention of Ratcliffe and his team.

The 52-year-old is now setting plans in motion to assemble a proficient support team at Old Trafford, targeting an experienced head of recruitment to complement his vision. Speculation suggests that Ashworth is eyeing Chelsea’s chief analyst Kyle Macaulay, with whom he previously collaborated at Brighton, facilitating notable signings such as Evan Ferguson, Kaoru Mitoma, and Moises Caicedo.

Although Macaulay transitioned to Stamford Bridge alongside Graham Potter, United’s interest in him signals a potential departure from Chelsea as they embark on a rebuilding phase. Additionally, Ipswich Town’s technical director Sam Williams is reportedly on United’s recruitment wishlist.

Regarding Ashworth’s potential move to Old Trafford, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano indicates that negotiations are underway, with United eager to finalize the deal. Gary Neville anticipates that Ashworth’s arrival will prompt a comprehensive review of past recruitment decisions, including missed opportunities such as Declan Rice’s move to Arsenal, shedding light on the club’s strategy and personnel involved.

Neville underscores the necessity of change at United, emphasizing the absence of a Sporting Director for a decade and the predominance of managerial and financial figures like Ed Woodward. Ashworth’s meticulous approach and impending appointment signal a new era of scrutiny and strategic overhaul within the club’s recruitment framework.
