Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has come under heavy criticism from the fans in recent weeks and he’s ready to make amends this summer.

Ed Woodward is said to be targeting at least four players in the summer according to the Daily Express.

He started the good work in the January transfer window especially with the signing of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon and the Portuguese international has made a good start to his career at the club with one goal and two assists in three league games.

Manchester United paid an initial fee of £47m for Bruno Fernandes and that transfer fee could rise to the £68m mark depending on add-ons and bonuses.

Manchester United were unable to sign Erling Haaland who opted for Borussia Dortmund and has been a revelation for the German Bundesliga club with 12 goals in his eight games at the Signa Iduna Park.

The Red Devils eventually settled for the loan transfer of Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Shenshua in the Chinese Super League.

Odion Ighalo was specifically signed as cover for the injured Marcus Rashford who’s the leading goalscorer for the Red Devils this season with 19 goals in all competitions.

Ed Woodward wants to sign three players this summer in addition to Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

Manchester United have made Jack Grealish one of their major targets for this summer and recent reports claimed that the Red Devils want to pay £70m for him and that the player has given the club the permission to push for a deal.

The club will also target a new defensive midfielder this summer especially with Serbian international Nemanja Matic leaving the club this summer when his contract expires.

A new striker and possibly the fullback positions are also on the agenda for Manchester United this summer.
