Manchester United are reportedly setting their sights again on Atletico Madrid’s top executive, Andrea Berta, following their underwhelming beginning to the current season under manager Erik ten Hag.
The storied club has faced a turbulent start, with losses in six of the initial ten matches they’ve played. Amidst this backdrop, whispers have emerged about potential changes at the administrative level at Old Trafford, with an emphasis on bringing in seasoned figures to bolster the executive team.
A recent piece by The Independent brings Berta into the spotlight, marking him as a prime candidate. However, any move in this direction would seemingly not affect John Murtough’s position as the football director.
Manchester United’s current predicament has led to an internal review, prompting them to possibly revisit their past interests. Berta, it seems, is no stranger to the Red Devils. Back in 2018, United’s then-chief executive, Ed Woodward, had highlighted Berta as a prospective addition to the club’s management, with then-coach Jose Mourinho signaling his approval.
Although that proposed shift never came to fruition, and Berta continued his association with Atletico, his instrumental role alongside coach Diego Simeone in the club’s successful era cannot be overlooked.
It remains to be seen whether Old Trafford will be his next professional destination.
