Man United chief Ed Woodward holds talks about third and fourth signings – report
Ed Woodward has flown out to the United States to hold crunch talks with Manchester United about their remaining transfer plans, say reports
Manchester United’s executive vice chairman Ed Woodward has flown out to the United States to step up the Red Devils’ transfer business, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Star is reporting that Woodward jetted out to Los Angeles to hold “crunch” talks with Jose Mourinho about Manchester United’s summer transfer business.
The same report claims that the Red Devils manager is “frustrated” by Manchester United’s failure to land more signings so far this summer.
The article also states that Manchester United are keen to bring in two more signings this summer as Mourinho prepares for his second season in charge at the club.
The same report says that a defensive midfielder is Mourinho’s remaining priority this summer, but the Portuguese coach is also keen to add a new striker to his squad ahead of next season.
Manchester United have so far already spent more than £100m on landing Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof this summer.
The Red Devils are gearing up for a return to the Champions League next season after they won the Europa League last term.
