However, there is growing frustration at United, with one discussion centring on whether Mourinho wants the club to appoint a director of football and what the remit would be.United want to make the appointment, which would be the first in their history, and accept that it is now a necessary role and they are out of step with their rivals.While Mourinho is not believed to be against the idea there is a belief that it will be hard to make an appointment that he will be satisfied with.It may mean that United have to delay their plans until Mourinho leaves – whether that is next summer, or even before then, or when his deal (which he has the option to extend for another 12 months) – expires in 2020.It is even understood that some candidates to be director of football are unsure as to whether they would want to take over at present. last_img
