Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, who will be taking over from David Gill in the summer, has stated that he is not anticipating “a major retooling” of the United squad this coming summer.
Woodward, who was speaking at a conference to outline Manchester United’s third quarter financial results, which once again show a rise in their commercial income with various deals being made over the past few months.
Sir Alex Ferguson had already admitted that he was already thinking about his squad actions for next season, that had caused media to believe that a big name signings maybe on the cards with both Falcao and Lewandowski being named.
However, Ed Woodward states that he is not sure that is strictly necessary to strengthen the squad.
“I wouldn’t expect there to be a major retooling of the squad
“There is incredible depth. We could put two first teams out with 11 internationals in each.
“It has been a phenomenal season. We are a long way ahead in the Premier League and whilst I wouldn’t describe the way we got knocked out of the Champions League as luck things could have gone differently in that game.
“We have a young squad and each of those are a year older. We are very comfortable with make up of team and squad.”
If Sir Alex Ferguson feels the need to strengthen the squad then they must feel good about attracting some top talent with money available, their year-on-year turnover for the first nine months has risen 13.1 per cent to £278.1million.
