Manchester United are edging closer towards appointing a new manager for their women’s side, according to reports. The position has been vacant since Casey Stoney left her post earlier this summer but an agreement has now been struck with a potential successor.
Stoney resigned from her position in May amid reservations over how the club was being run and over two months later, a permanent replacement is yet to walk through the doors at Carrington.
Earlier this month, it was even reported that some of the players in the Manchester United squad were seeking contact with the PFA amid concerns over the club’s inability to replace Stoney.
As first reported by @TomJGarry I understand Man Utd women have now agreed terms with Marc Skinner to become their new manager. #MUFC

On latest MUFC, Marc Skinner & Orlando Pride reports, my understanding (as of a couple of hours ago) is the settlement between the clubs still needs finalising (separate to Skinner/MUFC's agreement), as per our story from Tuesday. Neither club commenting.https://t.co/qHAzTDjWBX

New reports, however, claim that the club has now agreed terms with Orlando Pride manager Marc Skinner over a deal to take over the club’s women’s team.
That’s according to reports from journalists Emma Sanders and Tom Garry, as seen above, who say that despite an agreement being reached with Skinner, a resolution needs to be found with Orlando Pride before a deal can be completed.
