Manchester United are considering Darren Fletcher for the role of the technical director.
A disappointing season ended with a shambolic defeat to Cardiff City on the last day and club hierarchy is expected to bring in a number of changes to the current system. One of them is appointing a technical director who would work as a bridge between the manager and the chairman.
former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho refused to work under a technical director but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already sanctioned the move to bring accountability in the club ranks.
United are believed to be preferring candidates with a past history with clubs and Fletcher has the advantage of having played over 300 matches for the Red Devils. United also have had a discussion with former defender Rio Ferdinand too and he is also interested in taking this new job.
A number of former players are currently working at various positions at the club Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the senior team manager, Michale Carrick is one of Solskjaer’s assistants while Nicky Butt is the academy manager.
Fletcher currently plies his trade for Stoke City in the Championship but is likely not to be offered a contract extension when his existing deal expires in the summer.
