Our Manchester United fans know just how important the next few months are here in the Transfer Tavern and, as quoted by The Daily Mail, they’ve been intrigued by Ed Woodward’s latest comments.
The Old Trafford side have not exactly had the season they’d have wanted up until now with them out of the title race and success can still be achieved.
They are in the EFL Cup final as well as both the FA Cup and Europa League so the chance for trophies is definitely there.
At the end of the season, though, many will be interested to see what the club do in terms of transfers after spending massively last summer and, according to Woodward, it’ll be likely less radical than in recent times.
The club’s executive vice-chairman said:
“I think there’s always going to be continual improvement. I think even if you win everything, you still want to improve the squad – that’s the nature of the dynamic industry that we’re in.
“But I think we aren’t necessarily in a position where we have to churn a large number of players.
“I think I’ve guided before that we want to get to a more steady state and be buying and potentially selling a lower number of players each year.”
Could there be quieter times ahead for United in the transfer market, then?
Our landlord certainly feels they need to curb their spending after forking out massive amounts of money for players in recent years and so Woodward’s words do seem to make sense.
Even so, it remains to be seen if he sticks by his comments and the club will have to make sure those around them do not beat them to key targets.
