Ed Woodward drops hint about future Man United transfers
Ed Woodward drops a hint about future investment in the Manchester United squad
Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has promised that the club will continue to make the “necessary investments” to help the club reach back to the top of English football.
The Red Devils have made a slow start to the new campaign and have only won two of their opening six Premier League games to leave them well off the pace in the race for the title.
Manchester United slumped to a disappointing 2-0 loss to West Ham United at the London Stadium last weekend and they are currently down in eighth place in the Premier League table.
This week, Manchester United announced club-record revenue of £627.1m for the year ending 30 June 2019, up 6.3 per cent from 12 months ago.
And Red Devils chief Woodward has now hinted that Manchester United are now fully prepared to reinvest some of that cash into transfers as the January window draws nearer.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Woodward said: “Returning to the roots of our club’s ethos of youth-led, attacking football is the right way forward and everyone at the club: the board, the manager, the squad and all of the staff remain resolute in our desire to get Manchester United back to the top of English football.
“We’ll continue to make the necessary investments to make this happen across our first-team players, our academy and our recruitment department.
“This long-term approach to building a squad is the right one.”
Manchester United will attempt to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday night.
The Red Devils are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season after having finished sixth and without a trophy last term.
