Omar Berrada has left Manchester City and is set to be appointed as the new chief executive of rivals Manchester United.

United have been without a CEO since Richard Arnold’s exit.

They have now reached an agreement with Berrada, who has played a key part in City’s recent on and off the field success.

A City statement read: “Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Omar Berrada has resigned from his role as Chief Football Operations Officer at City Football Group.

“The club understands his decision to look for a new challenge and he leaves with our thanks and best wishes.”

Berrada becomes United’s first appointment since British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his firm INEOS agreed to buy a 25% stake in the club.
