Manchester United have appointed 50 new scouts as they are planning an overhaul of their scouting system.
United have been scouting a number of big players with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Hector Herrera etc. Since January, 50 scouts have been appointed to select the best talent in the world. United Academy is known for producing good players and Michael Keane and Marcus Rashford are among the promising players.
Previously Academy scouts and first team scouts had to report separately but executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward has abolished the policy.
Marcel Bout, appointed by former manager Louis Van Gaal, will now head the global scouting operation. The Red Devils have been spending heavily for the last couple of seasons but are far from the desired result.
What further bothers them is the fact that noisy neighbour Manchester City surges a few steps ahead when it comes to Academy and Scouting operation. Jose Mourinho and Academy head Nicky Butt will be benefited from the newly structured scouting system.
