Manchester United are beefing up their scouting operation ahead of the summer transfer window in a strong indication that a major overhaul of the playing staff is being planned at Old Trafford, with the club eager to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at least another transfer window to reshape his squad.
United are seeking to bring in a number of first-team scouts who will report to United's senior scouting team of Marcel Bout, Jim Lawlor and Simon Wells.
The club's owners, the Glazer family, and Ed Woodward, United's executive vice-chairman, have received a considerable amount of criticism for the way in which the club is run and a lack of transfer activity so far this month.
