United working hard on more “exciting” signings – Woodward

Following the capture of much-coveted defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace in a reported £50 million move, Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has assured the staff in an internal e-mail made public by Sky Sports, that the club are working on more exciting signings.

Wan-Bissaka follows in the footsteps of winger Daniel James, who arrived from Swansea as their first incoming deal of the summer.

Woodward confirmed once more that these two acquisitions go in accordance with United’s current transfer policy of bringing in young British talent, players that would fit in well with their long-term plans and the project of creating a team that would be able to fight for all honors again, under the guidance of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United finished sixth in the Premier League this spring after a highly disappointing campaign and will consequently miss out on the 2019/20 Champions League. That is undoubtedly an issue Woodward and his staff have to contend with, along with, in his words, “the inflated nature of the transfer market and constant speculation and stories, which can be misleading”.
