Manchester United dismiss rumours of a spending spree in January

As reported by BBC Sport, Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has revealed the club aren’t looking to make moves in the January transfer market unless their summer targets become available earlier.

“We are not looking to enter the market for short-term fixes. However, we have targets we are looking at for next summer. Should any of them become available in January, which is obviously rare, we will consider acting. But it is a low probability,” he said.

Manchester United spent more than £150M this summer, with the likes of Angel Di Maria £60M breaking their transfer record. New manager Louis Van Gaal has been able to translate that onto the pitch, however, with the Red Devils four points worse off than this time last season under eventually-sacked predecessor David Moyes, now in charge of La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad.

But it’s clear United won’t bring in any short-term options when the winter window is open, rather continuing their build for the future.
