According to a report from Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward played a huge role in potentially bringing long-time target Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford following the news they have agreed a fee – but supporters still refuse to credit the figure.
Fernandes, who has been linked with a United transfer since last summer (Nicolo Schira via Daily Express), could be close to sealing a deal at long last – with news coming in that the Red Devils have bid an initial £46.56 million for the player which could rise to £67.76 million with add-ons (Sky Sports). According to the club statement, personal terms and a medical are the only hurdles left.
However, even if Woodward had a hand in bringing the Portuguese playmaker to the Premier League, Red Devils supporters are still hesitant in praising the figure given his business in the past. The 25-year-old, who exceeds current creative force Paul Pogba in almost every aspect, including shots per game (3.5), dribbles (3.7) and key passes completed (1.8) as per WhoScored.com, is seen as a potential attacking outlet who could take United to another level going forward.
However, even despite his reportedly imminent signing, Woodward is still getting no love from supporters – find all of their best comments down below.
No credit for incompetent Woodward

Woodward is pathetic. He wastes weeks and still ends up paying the fee SP wanted. He is a joke and United fans must hound him out. Enough is enough.

We lose out to top 4 by a point it’s on him. 1st January Bruno should have been ready for.

Woodward shouldn’t be getting any glory at all , we are not interested in any PR spin.
Woodward needs to step aside and hire a proper DOF let him run the whole recruitment and contracts ,then get rid of Matt judge coz he ain’t good !
