The judge’s decision is believed to have come after a series of structural changes at Old Trafford that led to the Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward‘s departure earlier this year. His relationship with the club is set to remain amicable but his imminent departure comes at an interesting time given other developments behind the scenes.

United were reportedly eyeing a new director of football, but that may have taken a lopsided turn after Mitchell turned down a move to England. The Englishman has been tempted to stick with the offer of a sizeable budget to spend in Monaco in the upcoming window.
