Manchester United fans want Jordi Cruyff to be their new transfer guru

As a player, Jordi Cruyff hardly managed to live up to his name seeing as he was the son of one of the greatest ever footballers and football men, Johan Cruyff. However, as a technical director, he could still carve his own path into the echelons of footballing history, and what better place to do so than at Old Trafford.

Cruyff turned out for the Red Devils as a player  in the late ’90s and was rather close with the now Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 45-year-old ex-defensive midfielder has ventured into management and directing footballing clubs since his retirement but hasn’t been at the same calibre clubs that he was as a player, although that could be set to change.

Currently managing in China with Chongqing Dangdai Lifan, the chances are the Dutchman is being very handsomely paid, but that hasn’t stopped a number of Red Devils from personally picking him out as the man who they want to see come in to ease the burden on Ed Woodward and Solskjaer.

It would make sense to bring him in as an ex-player, but also as he knows how to do the role and wouldn’t be fazed by the idea of stepping into the unknown at a club the size of United.
