Man United transfers: Vice-chairman Ed Woodward doesn't expect wholesale changes at the Red Devils this summer
Manchester United won’t be making any major changes to their squad after winning the Premier League title, according to the club’s vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men won their 20th top-flight crown with four games to spare and their marquee signing from last summer, Robin van Persie, proved a big hit with a return of 25 league goals.
The Red Devils have been linked with a big-money move for Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao this summer, while Borussia Dortmund front-man Robert Lewandowski is another touted target.
But Woodward has warned the club’s supporters not to expect wholesale changes and said United would be keeping faith in young talent such as Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck, who have made a big impact this term.
“I wouldn’t expect there to be a major retooling of the squad,” he said.
“There is incredible depth. We could put two first teams out with 11 internationals in each.
“It has been a phenomenal season. We are a long way ahead in the Premier League and whilst I wouldn’t describe the way we got knocked out of the Champions League as luck things could have gone differently in that game.
“We have a young squad and each of those are a year older. We are very comfortable with make up of team and squad.”
