The Manchester Evening News say a new personality is set to join the club’s board alongside Darren Fletcher and John Murtough.
Richard Arnold replaced Ed Woodward as the club’s chief executive earlier this year and is unhappy with many elements of the business, including recruitment, social media strategy and communications.
Matt Judge, who has overseen recruitment at the club for the past eight years, surprisingly resigned from his post earlier this month.
This will free up a position at board level and the club are looking to appoint another figure with decision-making powers to support Erik ten Hag’s move to the club.
Murtough is expected to take over Judge’s transfer negotiations as football director, while Ralf Rangnick will continue to act as an adviser to the club after his tenure as interim manager is over.
Arnold is said to believe there must be “significant” changes within the club and that is clear with the departure of scouts Jim Lawlor and Marcel Bout, who were relieved of their duties last month.
