Manchester United have not ruled out hiring Edwin van der Sar as Ed Woodward’s replacement, according to reports.
And while Richard Arnold appears the likeliest successor, the Red Devils may go for somebody else instead.
Woodward was named as United’s executive vice-chairman back in 2013, taking over from David Gill.
And ESPN say United could yet go for Van der Sar, with the appointment of an outside candidate ‘not ruled out’.
But while United haven’t ruled out going for the Dutchman, the report does make it clear Arnold is the ‘obvious choice’ to take over.
However, that appointment is unlikely to quell some of the doom and gloom mood that currently surrounds the club.
Arnold, like Woodward, has been privy to ongoings at United in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson walked away for the last time.
But what United ultimately do remains to be seen.
