Man Utd expected to appoint Tom Keane as new chief transfer negotiator

Manchester United are expected to appoint Tom Keane, the brother of Everton defender Michael and Wigan striker Will, as a replacement outgoing negotiations director Matt Judge.

Judge’s resignation was revealed at the end of April, the latest in a number of high-profile changes within the Old Trafford hierarchy.

Ed Woodward has already been replaced by Richard Arnold, who was promoted from his former role of group managing director, while senior scouting heads Jim Lawlor and Marcel Bout have also recently left the club. Meanwhile, John Murtough and Darren Fletcher are only a little over a year into their respective roles as football director and technical director.

Judge, who has been at United since 2012 and has been responsible for transfer and contract negotiations since 2014, did not believe he would be part of new long-term plans for the club.

The Daily Mail has reported that Keane will now take on some of the duties that fell under Judge’s job profile. That will include a ‘significant’ role in negotiating transfers during what is now expected to be a busy period for the club in Erik ten Hag’s first summer as manager.
