Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward exit plans are on schedule.

The Daily Mail says Woodward is set to leave his position as Manchester United's executive vice-chairman as planned in April with managing director Richard Arnold lined up to succeed him.

While Woodward took a hands-on role in last week's dramatic events at Old Trafford with the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and recruitment of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager, he is not planning to stay on until a permanent appointment has been made next summer.

Arnold is understood to want to take charge as soon as possible, although a final decision regarding the timing of the transition rests with the Glazer family.

Woodward is likely to be offered a consultancy role at United whenever he finally departs, with the club eager to retain his contacts and influence in the industry.
