After repeated pressure, Manchester United CEO Ed Woodward finally made sure that the club would spend hugely on the opportunity of the transfer market next summer.
In the transfer market last summer, not much was brought by Manchester United. Instead they lost Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera. Not surprisingly, fans are urging the club to recruit new striker.
Unfortunately, the remaining time of the transfer market does not necessarily benefit the Red Devils. As a result, their performance seemed lame, with a front line that looks blunt. No wonder the fans and a number of parties urged Manchester United to buy a brand-new player last winter.
Sure enough, the club recruited Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandez, who was bailed out for 80 million euros from Sporting Lisbon. They also recruited brand-new striker Odion Ighalo on loan from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
However, the two players are still considered not enough to bring the team to compete in the title race. Therefore, CEO Ed Woodward still gets pressure from the fans.
After a moment of silence, the CEO finally spoke up. This time, he won fans’ requests, even promising the club to spend a lot of money in the transfer market next summer.
“As part of the redevelopment, we see next summer as an important opportunity,”
“There has been no shortage of investment in players in recent years, with more than 200 million Pounds spent since Ole became coach. Our goal is to ensure that we continue to achieve consistency in quality recruitment, “Woodward said as quoted by Metro.
However, it was also emphasized by Ed Woodward that the club would not be haphazardly recruiting players. The target must be quality and in accordance with the philosophy carried by the manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
The main thing is to integrate experienced players with young players for the club’s long-term plan.
“The recruitment department is working on a clear plan and philosophy, along with Ole and his coaching staff. Our focus is on bringing a combination of experience and the best young players with the potential to develop further,” he added.
