Man United transfer strategy baffles pundit after Richard Arnold leak
Kevin Campbell is baffled to hear Man United chief executive Richard Arnold completely distance himself from the club’s transfer business.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker claimed such decisions should be “done by committee” with the manager having the final say.
On Saturday (18 June), a video was leaked online of Richard Arnold meeting a group of disgruntled fans in a pub.
The 51-year-old addressed a number of issues at Old Trafford during the conversation, including spending, the dressing room, a new stadium and transfers.
As quoted by Goal (18 June), Arnold revealed he has distanced himself from the club’s transfer dealings in what he described as a shift from the strategy under previous chief executive Ed Woodward.
When asked by Football Insider if this was the best approach to take moving forward, Campbell said: “I don’t know about having no say.

“It should be done by committee. The manager should have the final say but there should be a lot of people having an input. The fact that he said he has no say, I’m not sure.
“Of course, whatever works best works best but for me they should be putting their heads together. Two heads are better than one.
“The defining vote should come from the manager. That is the way I see it.”
Speaking on transfers, Arnold said: “Get who you [Erik ten Hag] want.
“Do you want me buying the players? Does that not ring a bell?”
