Manchester United will maintain their planned and disciplined approach to transfers and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will continue to implement the club’s vision as he looks to rebuild his squad at Old Trafford.
That is according to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who claimed that the club were linked with no fewer than 111 players in the last transfer window, but that the goal remains the same – to bring in experienced world-class players to supplement the club’s exciting crop of academy graduates.
In the end United signed just three players during the last window – midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon, striker Odion Ighalo, and goalkeeper Nathan Bishop, the latter two signed on deadline day.
It has been reported also that the club’s annual revenue fell 11.6% last year, a direct consequence of them not being involved in the Champions League this season, underlining once again the importance of a top four finish this season.
