For any of you that haven’t heard of him. He is Ed Woodward’s right hand man that deals with contract negotiations of players. He ‘negotiated’ the Sanchez transfer which led to the player signing the most ridiculous contract in footballing history. Sanchez’s very expensive contract has spiralled into one of the biggest problems at the club. Matthew Judge has negotiated £200k a week contracts with Shaw and Martial which more than doubled their previous salaries. What had either of these players done to get such a pay rise? If you look at how Daniel Levy does contract negotiations at Tottenham, their players get small regular pay rises provided they sign a year extension on their contracts. This in turn has kept their wage budget down whilst retaining player value as they are all on long term contracts. This man has negotiated contracts for Jones, Smalling and Young this season. Before that he let Fellaini bully him into a 2 year extension, something we had never done for a player over 30. This in turn has meant other players wanted the same terms. And finally he has been unable to get Herrera to sign a new contract. There is no news on Mata or De Gea extending their contracts either. So what qualifies him for such a job at Manchester United? That’s right he was an investment banker and best friend with Woodward at university. For anything to change at Manchester United he has to be one of the first people to leave.
