Moyes To Restructure Manchester United’s Scouting System

New boss unhappy with botched summer dealings.Check in to Manchester United vs Crystal Palace

Manchester United manager David Moyes is set to restructure the club’s scouting system after he was left frustrated over their inability to close all but one of the deals he wanted to secure this summer, the Mirror reports.

The recently arrived boss has come in for some heavy criticism over his failure to bring in a number of high profile targets at various points during the transfer window and will now review how the legendary club go about finding potential targets.

It is thought that Moyes is eager to bring in his own tried and tested bunch of talent spotters in order to avoid another humiliating summer like this one again. The former Everton man not only wants his scouts to find the best talent available, but to also know what his chances of actually signing them will be too.

The United boss was on the trail of Thiago Alcantara when he was leaving Barcelona but the main snag was doubt about his transfer fee, meaning the delay freed him up to head to Bayern Munich instead.

Midfielder Alcantara had a fixed price in his contract but United had conflicting reports on the cost.

The champions also missed out on the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera, Fabio Coentrao, Mezut Ozil and Sami Khedira.
