January 23 According to the latest news from The Athletic UK ace reporter David Ornstein
According to reports, Tom Keane (Tom Keane), who was seconded as Manchester United’s head of football negotiations to assist Manchester United in last summer’s transfer business, was expected to return to Manchester United permanently, but he returned to his law firm Brandsmiths.
Keane, who replaced Matt Judge last June and was involved in the Casemiro-Antoine deal in the summer, flew to Spain with director of football Murtaugh to strike a deal with the Real Madrid midfielder.
Keane’s 11-week “firefighting” career ended after the summer window closed, and the two sides conducted long-term negotiations on directly taking over the position of Manchester United’s negotiating director.
However uncertainty over United’s ownership changed plans, with a number of appointments put on hold while the Glazers go through the sale process, which could lead to major changes at Old Trafford.
Between now and the summer transfer window, clubs are still searching for a candidate for the role.
Keane Dongchuang has not been involved in various affairs of Manchester United. The agent once called him, but he is currently in charge of Murtaugh, his deputy Oboyle and the director of signings, Steve Brown.
TA said that Keane’s departure also means that Manchester United will not make any big deals in the winter window. It was Motauf and other lawyers and teams who completed the loan deal of Verhorst and Butland.
