Woodward to double down on transfer promise in Man Utd investors’ call

Ed Woodward is expected to follow up on his promise of Manchester United investing heavily in the summer by doubling down on his word when speaking to club investors this week.

Earlier this month the United executive vice-chairman said the club viewed this summer's transfer window as an important opportunity to rebuild the club.

United wanted to add four players across the winter and summer windows but only brought in Bruno Fernandes full-time in January. Odion Ighalo of course arrived on loan.

With United far from competing with the likes of Liverpool and Man City, and a Champions League place still a doubt this season, the Reds are expected to recruit heavily come July 1.

"Our recruitment process focuses on analysis and selection of players over the course of a season, with a view to the following summer transfer window," said Woodward.

"As part of the rebuild we see this coming summer as an important opportunity."

Woodward will speak this week following United's latest set of quarterly financial results and face questions from investors.

With fans caring little about sponsorship deals and shirt sales it is expected that Woodward will reiterate his desire for United to invest in the summer, as per the Standard.

Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish and James Maddison remain high up United's wishlist.

Villa midfielder Grealish recently responded to the speculation surrounding his future and said he is taking it with a pinch of salt.
