vice executive-chairman Woodward is keen to appoint a director of football with the club struggling under Jose Mourinho
Mourinho is still furious at the club for their failure to strengthen their defence back in the summer, with the Red Devils missing out on players such as Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Diego Godin, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng.
In order to ensure Manchester United be among the frontrunners for the world's best players, Woodward believes a director of football would be a key appointment.
Roma's Monchi, Ajax's Edwin van der Sar and even United legend Patrice Evra have all been tipped to take the job.

But the Daily Record
claim Mourinho has pitched Luis Campos for the role.
Mourinho reportedly rates his compatriot's judgement on players, with Campos previously working under the United boss at Real Madrid.
When the 55-year-old left the Bernabeu in 2013, Campos joined him out the door.
He then went to Monaco, unearthing a gem in Kylian Mbappe and helping the Ligue 1 giants beat PSG to the title.
Campos has since moved to Lille, where he has helped them up to second in the Ligue 1 table.
However, the Daily Record say Woodward is yet to interview a man recommended by Mourinho.
It is claimed they are ready to wait until Mourinho leaves the club before putting a candidate in the role.
And what happens next remains to be seen.

Mourinho reportedly does have some objections to a director of football appointment, but is not entirely against the idea.
And, speaking recently, he refused to discuss the matter.
'My thoughts are that I am not going to discuss with you the way that I think Manchester United should be organised,' he said.
'One thing is to compliment Juventus, and another is to give you my opinion on how Manchester United should or shouldn't be organised at that level.'
