Proceedings are ongoing for another high-power recruitment with Newcastle United’s sporting director Dan Ashworth on the radar.

Sir Jim’s move for Dan Ashworth has spewed speculations that Gareth Southgate could be the next on line to become Manchester United manager should Sir Jim decide to part ways with Erik ten Hag.

Dan Ashworth and Garth Southgate are said to be close associates having worked together in England national team.

Dan Ashworth is primed to take over the sports directorship at Manchester United and will oversee sundry roles covering player and managers’ recruitment at Manchester United.

Man United links? They have a manager and it’d be extremely disrespectful to talks about that”.

“I’m the England manager. I’ve got one job, to try and deliver a European championship”.

“I have nothing to say”.
