Ed Woodward: Man Utd Have Clear Vision on Transfers

Manchester United have “clear vision” when it comes to transfers, says executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, with the “ultimate goal” being to “win trophies by playing exciting football”.

The Red Devils have seen their recruitment model questioned at times and Woodward has faced accusations of being too hands-on when it comes to market moves, although he maintains that is not the case.

For him, he is merely there to sign off on the deals targeted by the manager and approved by the board, and that remains Woodward’s stance after the announcement of United’s first quarter revenue results.

Woodward said in a statement made alongside the financial results: "We have a clear vision in terms of football philosophy and recruitment.

"The significant investments that we have made in recent years in areas such as transfers, recruitment infrastructure, analytics and our academy are already beginning to bear fruit.

"We are very proud to be shortly approaching a milestone 4,000th game featuring an academy player, and we are particularly optimistic regarding the considerable young talent currently coming through.

"Our ultimate goal is to win trophies by playing exciting football with a team that fuses graduates from our academy with world-class acquisitions." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
