Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has shared news involving Manchester United chief scout Jim Lawlor on Twitter.
The Lowdown: Ten Hag announced
It looks set to be a summer of change at Old Trafford, with Erik ten Hag now confirmed as Ralf Rangnick’s replacement at the end of the season.
Romano revealed in the early hours of Thursday morning that ‘contracts and paperworks’ were ready for the Dutchman following a full agreement last week, with Ten Hag now penning terms until June 2025.
Happy with Ten Hag at Old Trafford?
No, he's not the right man!
The 52-year-old previously demanded to be 100% involved in new signings, outgoings and fresh contracts, and he’ll be working with a new scouting team in England.
The Latest: Lawlor to leave
News emerged on Wednesday regarding Lawlor, who has been on the books at Old Trafford for 16 years. He is set to leave the club over the summer, while head of global scouting Marcel Bout is also departing.
Romano took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to drop the key exit news on social media, saying:
“Manchester United revolution begins as chief scout Jim Lawlor leaves the club.”
The Verdict: Revolution needed?
Lawlor and Bout worked together for seven years and made a number of high-profile signings, which you could say largely haven’t worked out.
Hopefully, Ten Hag will be heavily involved when it comes to incomings and outgoings with a new scouting setup, in what could be an extremely busy first summer on charge.
