Manchester United set to spend big in the summer according to Ed Woodward

Manchester United executive vice-president Ed Woodward has vowed that the Red Devils will spend big in the summer transfer window.

The fans of the club have not been happy with how Woodward has run the club and the financial wiz had his house attacked by fans who threw flares into the house and sprayed graffiti on the wall.

United fans have openly stated that he and the Glazers, the owners of the club, have been the most responsible for the downfall of the club since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

The 20-time Premier League champions are in 8th position in the league, six points 4th placed Chelsea, and thus, Woodward has stated that the club will splash the cash in the summer as it is an important opportunity to bring in new talent.

The 48-year-old said that the summer recruitment is a part of the rebuild and that the recruitment department are working closely with manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and his staff to bring in the best options.

He continued, saying that the focus is to bring in a combination of experience and the best young players with the potential to develop further and combine them with the academy products that are being brought into the first-team.

The club brought in Harry Maguire for a world-record fee for a defender, Aaron Wan Bissaka for £52m and Daniel James from Leeds last summer.

In the recent January transfer window, Odion Ighalo joined on loan as an emergency back-up striker as well as Bruno Fernandes from Sporting for £68m – a midfielder that United have had a long-standing interest in.

Despite a top-four place looking less likely as the weeks go by, they still have a chance to seal qualification to the Champions League via winning the Europa League – a feat that they achieved when Jose Mourinho was at the helm.

The Red Devils face Club Brugge, who finished third in this year’s Champions League group that contained Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, in the round of 16.

However, before that matchup, Solskjaer’s men face a crucial tie in the Premier League against Chelsea that could help United close the gap.

United have not been at their best in terms of form, having lost three times in the last five games in the league and only winning one of the other games.

Yet, they do tend to come big in fixtures against the top-six sides and are still the only team to stop Liverpool winning in a game this campaign.
