Woodward promises more Man Utd signings

Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has promised that new signings are on the way as the club looks to put the disappointment of last season behind them, the Guardian has reported.

Manchester United’s Old Trafford

This is Woodward’s second summer of transfer dealings since taking over from David Gill as CEO, and has already set about making up for his failure to seal big-name acquisitions last summer. Despite being involved in negotiations for a number of players, only Marouane Fellaini arrived shortly before the transfer deadline.

So far this summer, he has enabled Man Utd to make two signings, with playmaker Ander Herrera and young left-back Luke Shaw having made the move to Old Trafford and become new boss Louis van Gaal’s first signings. Several other players have been linked with a move to the club, and Woodward has confirmed that more new faces are indeed imminent.

He said: “Louis is the boss and is assessing what’s going on but we have been in dialogue for some time about targets so there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes … we’re continuing to move forward on some of those targets … so watch this space.

“The time he [Van Gaal] spends here as well as in America, he’ll be able to assess what he’s got and continue to tweak the decisions if we need to. We want to do what it takes to win the title.”

He also stated that the club was ‘extremely strong’ financially, and that a great amount of big-name players still see a move to Man Utd as an attractive option despite their failure to qualify for either European competition for next season.
