Jose Mourinho’s relationship with Ed Woodward is at an all-time low due to disagreements about Manchester United’s summer transfer business, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Mourinho is “at loggerheads” with the Manchester United chief about the club’s transfer activity this summer.

The Red Devils have so far only signed three new players ahead of the new season, with Manchester United having wrapped up deals for Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant earlier in the window.

The same story says that Woodward is reluctant to release more funds for Manchester United to sign new players this summer, with the Red Devils already having spent around £70m.

According to the same report, Woodward is not prepared to throw more money at the situation as the Red Devils prepare for Mourinho’s third season in charge at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are under pressure to deliver major trophies next season after they finished second and without any silverware last term.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

Manchester United did win both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign at the club.
