Ed Woodward is searching for a sporting director at Manchester United

The Sun report that Webber has a number of admirers at Old Trafford after the good work he has done with Norwich.

He also helped steer Huddersfield towards promotion before taking up the role at Carrow Road.

At the newly promoted club, he oversaw a radical strategy change from the academy upwards and they achieved Premier League status in two years following his arrival.

Talented youngsters James Maddison and Angus Gunn have come through to the first team since he joined the club.

United have been searching for a sporting director to work with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


They finished a disappointing sixth place in the Premier League this season and the club are set for a squad overhaul in the summer.

A number of former players have been touted for the role, including Darren Fletcher and Rio Ferdinand, but Webber is firmly in the running.
