Ex-PSG chief Henrique prepares scouts for Man Utd move

Former PSG sports chief Antero Henrique continues to be linked with Manchester United.

It's been claimed in England that Henrique is in talks about taking a technical director's position at United.

And France's Soccer Link reports the Portuguese has already instructed his scouting network to analyse potential deals on United's behalf.

Henrique spent 26 years at Porto and previously dealt with Manchester United as he helped take Brazilian midfielder Anderson to the club.

He left his role as sporting director at Paris Saint-Germain after two seasons last summer having overseen a period of transformation for the Ligue 1 giants.

While it's been reported that Ed Woodward and Matt Judge would have the final say on new signings, a technical director would play a huge role in finding players.
