Ed Woodward is scheduled to step down as Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman in April, and managing director Richard Arnold has been lined up to take his place.
While Woodward was there for last week’s dramatic events at Old Trafford, which included the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager, he does not want to stay until a permanent replacement is found next summer.
Arnold is said to want to take over as soon as feasible, however the Glazer family will make the final decision on the transition’s timing.
When Woodward ultimately leaves United, he is expected to be offered a consulting job, since the club is keen to keep his relationships and influence in the business.
