According to sources, David Gill is once again a key figure at Manchester United. Before retiring in 2013, the 64-year-old was the club’s top executive. But now he’s back at Old Trafford, just as Ed Woodward’s time is running out.

Gill began his career with United as a financial director in 1997, before being elevated to deputy chief executive three years later.
And, after Peter Kenyon’s contentious departure for Chelsea in 2003, he was promoted to chief executive.
United struggled at first under Gill’s leadership.
Chelsea was on the verge of becoming a superpower at the moment, with Jose Mourinho collecting championships.
But Gill was instrumental in the signings of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, and by the time he left, the club had reclaimed its status as the finest in the country.
In 2008, United also won the Champions League, with Ronaldo and Rooney playing key roles.

However, according to The Athletic, he is once again a “prominent figure” at the club, though no further details are revealed.
Gill’s rumored return to United comes as Woodward’s tenure as vice executive chairman draws to a close.
Since the Glazers promoted him eight years ago, Woodward has held a lot of power at the club.
“I am immensely proud to have served United and it has been an honor to work for the world’s best football club for the past 16 years,” he said at the time after the European Super League catastrophe earlier this year.
“The club is well positioned for the future, and leaving at the end of the year will be difficult.”
