Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Manchester United should appoint Dougie Freedman, the 49-year-old sporting director of Crystal Palace; Ahad Shaukat reports for Caughtoffside.



According to a report by Football Insider, Freedman, the sporting director of Crystal Palace, is highly regarded by Sir Alex Ferguson, who wants Freedman as Man United’s new head of recruitment.

The Man United legend believes the Eagles’ chief may accomplish amazing things for the team under new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe.


Changes are expected at Man United


INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have finalized their minority buyout, giving them complete authority over Man United’s sporting decisions.


Significant adjustments have already been made in the background as they attempt to bring the club back to life. Appointing Freedman could be another brilliant decision by the club.


They have already named Omar Berrada, the former CEO of Manchester City, as their new CEO, and they are almost done appointing Dan Ashworth as their new Sporting Director.


Ashworth is on gardening leave after deciding to go from Newcastle United to Old Trafford.


When the two clubs reach a compensation agreement to stop his gardening leave, he will be fully responsible for overseeing transfer decisions for the Red Devils.


Why does Sir Alex want Freedman at Man United?


Ferguson thinks the two may help them relive their golden days. Therefore, he wants Freedman to become head of recruitment on Ashworth’s staff.


In the summer of 2017, the 49-year-old assumed leadership as Palace’s sporting director. For them, he has performed admirably throughout the years.


Their most successful recent additions were brought to the team by Freedman, who also brought in Marc Guehi, Eberechi Eze, and Michael Olise.


All three have the potential to be significant stars; if they are ever sold, they should command enormous prices.

Ferguson feels Freedman could help Ashworth identify such talents and bring them to Old Trafford.
