In case you missed this earlier, it is our understanding that Manchester United are not looking to appoint a director of football, following reports that Louis van Gaal is set for a role change.

Van Gaal enters the final weekend of a disappointing season by taking his team into an FA Cup final against Crystal Palace desperate for his first trophy since taking over two years ago.

The Sun reported the Dutchman is set to see out the final year of his contract as director of football which would open the door for Mourinho to be the new manager.

However, we understand United won’t be pursuing that structure.
