Manchester United is looking to hire Monchi as her first sporting director. The club created the position after coach Jose Mourinho fell out with CEO Ed Woodward over transfers.
Monchi who was formerly with Sevilla spent 17 years there and helped them establish themselves in the top half of La Liga, winning 11 trophies. He discovered Jesus Navas, Sergio Ramos and Jose Reyes as well as making huge profits from sales of Dani Alves, Seydou Keita and Ivan Takitic.
The 49-year-old is currently working in Roma and is wanted by both Manchester United and Barcelona.
Monchi is open to leaving Roma if they are not successful on the pitch
