Manchester United 'search for new Spanish feeder club' in attempt to combat Brexit

Manchester United are preparing for Britain's exit from the European Union - by searching for a new Spanish feeder club.

Spanish publication Marca report that the Premier League giants are on the hunt for new partnerships with overseas clubs, as per Sport Witness,

And it is alleged that finding one in Spain is "the first big objective."

The move would allow United to sign players from outside the EU who would otherwise be unable to get a work permit.

As speculation that Britain is heading towards a 'no-deal' Brexit ramps up, Old Trafford chiefs have been exploring ways to work around any problems that it could present with regards to signing players.

A rumoured partnership with current La Liga side Girona has been suggested on more than one occasion, but nothing concrete has yet been agreed.

The proposed deal would enable United to send players on loan to their feeder club with increased power over playing time.

This appeals to United's hierarchy, who are increasingly aware of the detrimental impact of jumping from one manager to another, and are keen to put plans in place for the future.

It was recently announced that Girona would be taking part in La Liga's first ever match abroad in the United States.

The match will see them take on Barcelona in Miami in January as the league bids to boost it's profile overseas.
