Ed Woodward

Manchester United Executive Vice- Chairman Ed Woodward is planning to bring in two marquee signings in the summer according to reports in the UK.

Jose Mourinho has recently called on the club to spend more in the transfer market if they are to keep up with high flyers Manchester City despite overseeing a transfer outlay of over ₤260 million since taking over in 2016.

The Manchester United manager is still believed to be in the process of overhauling the squad he inherited by Louis Van Gaal and has been active in the transfer market since his arrival with the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic joining the club amongst others.

The Portuguese boss while explaining his call for more investments in players stated that Big Wealthy European clubs like Manchester United are always required to pay more for players than the other teams in the market and that would explain why they have not been able to meet all their transfer plans with the budget for each window.

Now reports say, Woodward is willing to sign 2 major players for his club manager in the summer as they are looking to provide further backing for him.

Manchester United have been linked with the likes of Paulo Dybala, Antoinne Griezmann, Gareth Bale, Mesut Ozil and Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks and it is left to be seen if any of these players will be playing at Old Trafford come next season.
