Spanish publication AS have confirmed that Manchester United have signed Gerardo Guzman from Atletico Madrid to be a part of their scouting team at Old Trafford.
Guzman was the chief scout for Diego Simeone’s men and along with other duties was mainly tasked with the responsibility of discovering young talent under the age of 23.
Jose Mourinho has slowly gone about adding members to his backroom staff and has reportedly made scouting one of his main priorities at Manchester United, as was the norm under Sir Alex Ferguson too.
AS report that the Portuguese manager believes it to be vital to be ahead of his European rivals in identifying the brightest young talents all around the world.
Gerardo Guzman joins the likes of Kieran McKenna, a former player and coach at White Hart Lane, who has been brought in with the aim to aid the development of the young talents at the club.
