United already have John Murtough as the club’s first-ever football director, with his deputy Andy O’Boyle and former midfielder Darren Fletcher acting as technical directors.

Ratcliffe will have to beat Chelsea to bring Campos to the club as new Blues owner Todd Boehly has reportedly offered the Portuguese adviser a deal worth £7million a year to move to Stamford Bridge, as reported by the The sun.
