No New signings: ED Woodward silences the call for new signings amid injury nightmare!
When Michael Carrick suffered during the International break which was coupled with Daley Blind injury also on National Guard, there have been murmurs in the Manchester United fan base that their owners might be forced to spend again after some heavy spending in January. However as it turned out to be, Manchester United owners are resistant to an idea involving money transfer in winter transfer window.
Manchester United spent more than £200million in transfers this summer but there was still a need of a good center back couple with a defensive midfielder. However, Ed Woodward the Executive Vice Chairman has claimed that the probability of new signings is very low.
Manchester United who are sitting 7th in the Premier League table, just 2 points from the much enamored 4th spot, were linked with several players after the transfer window was shut. Top of the list were the players like Gareth Bale and Arturo Vidal both of which were linked outrageously with the Red Devils. Defenders like Matt Hummels were also rumoured to be on Van Gaal wish-list but recent claims by their Vice Chairman has quashed those rumours.
Manchester United fans won’t be happy as they wanted some short term replacements to players going on the sidelines however Woodward, in a clear language, has rubbished those claims and stated that they are looking for the players who will be available for solving their long term duties. And as the probability of these new players coming in January is very low, they might be keeping their bank account intact.
