Man Utd chief Woodward makes offer to Fletcher

Manchester United have tabled an offer to former midfielder Darren Fletcher about a return to the club.

The Daily Mail says United have offered a role to former player Fletcher which is as yet unspecified but expected to be broad in terms of liaising between the playing staff and board, advising on recruitment at all levels and implementing better structure around the training ground.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is understood to be a big admirer of 35-year-old Fletcher and believes he has the intelligence and connection with the club to help transform the current malaise behind the scenes.

Woodward would still preside over transfer decisions with Matt Judge and John Murtough while taking advice from technical chief scout Mick Court but Fletcher's input would be valued.
