Sigh of relief for Liverpool fans as Manchester United stance on signing Michael Edwards revealed

According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are ‘unlikely’ to make a move for outgoing Liverpool director Michael Edwards.

Edwards has been nothing short of an icon during his time with the Reds. He joined the club from Tottenham Hotspur in 2011 and was promoted to become the club’s sporting director under Jurgen Klopp in 2016.

Since then, he has been the mastermind behind completing deals for modern-day Liverpool icons such as Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Alisson Becker. But all good things come to an end.

Julian Ward has replaced Edwards at the helm and has had a good summer window so far- at least when it comes to incomings. Edwards, meanwhile, is set to depart Anfield after an 11-year stay with us.

Edwards risks the wrath of Liverpool fans

Amidst this situation, worrying news emerged that Man United could consider a move for the LFC backroom maestro. But it is now claimed that the club is happy with John Murtough taking charge of transfer dealings and that a move for Edwards is unlikely.

Seeing a person of Edwards’ capabilities join Man Utd at a time when they are planning a revamp under Erik ten Hag would have been a worrying sight. The man knows how to get deals across the line for a player his club really wants.

Moreover, he would know the ins and outs of Liverpool’s transfer approach and talent identification during their time under Klopp.

Possessing such information means that seeing him join United could have done us more damage than if one of our current stars made the switch to Old Trafford. And the prospect of Michael Edwards joining Manchester United should be as unthinkable a situation as that.

Hopefully, the 43-year-old Englishman doesn’t burn bridges with Liverpool fans and departs as a Liverpool legend- as attractive a job at Manchester may seem.
