Man Utd chef Ed Woodward promises transfer to fans – but issues harsh warning


Manchester United chief Ed Woodward has warned fans that the Red Devils are not immune to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

But the executive vice president has promised that as soon as the club has a visible path through the crisis, it will aim to be very competitive in the transfer market.

The global COVID-19 epidemic has stopped football in its tracks, and there is no confirmed date for the resumption of the Premier League.

As a result, it is unclear when the summer transfer window will open, or whether clubs will be able to financially spend a lot of money on new recruits.

United are in a better financial position than most clubs, but Woodward warned that this does not entirely exempt the Red Devils from difficulties.

“It is always a priority for us to strengthen the team and build on what Ole is doing very clearly in terms of bringing us to the top.

“But we need to be clear about what the future holds.

“Obviously, it is true that we are fortunate to be in a good financial position compared to many clubs, but we are not immune to the financial impact of what this virus does.

“I would say that once we get this visibility on the road to the crisis and get out on the other side of relative normality, then, of course, we aim to stay very competitive in the market.

“As I have said before and I have said over and over – we remain committed to supporting Ole to win trophies. This is our main goal as a club. “
