Ed Woodward has decided to run his mouth to staff about Manchester United’s dealings by insisting the club is working hard to sign more “exciting” players.
The executive vice-chairman at United says they want players who fit the “long-term vision” of the club.
I guess that’s great, but what would Woodward know about the long-term vision of Manchester United? Truthfully he only sees that as additional time to sink the club into a deeper hole of commercial greed.
Woodward is a Glazer puppet, not someone who acts in Manchester United’s best interests.

But in an internal email to staff sent shortly before the official announcement of Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s move from Crystal Palace, Woodward offered reassurances that the club are busy in the transfer market.
“Despite the inflated nature of the transfer market and constant speculation and stories, which can be misleading, the recruitment team – in conjunction with the manager [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] – are working calmly behind the scenes to bring in other exciting players that fit their long-term vision for the club,” Woodward wrote, as per Sky Sports.
Solskjaer is said to be targeting hungry, young homegrown players to rebuild his side this summer. He’s done that already so far by capturing the signings of Daniel James and most recently Wan-Bissaka.
Woodward claims they are sticking by Solskjaer’s philosophy in the transfer market.
“Following the arrival of Daniel James from Swansea earlier this month, I am delighted to confirm that we have signed exciting young defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace,” Woodward added.
“Aaron fits perfectly with Ole’s philosophy and plans for building his team and is a player who will excite our great fans as the season unfolds.”
Woodward doesn’t have a clue when it comes to football, so I wouldn’t buy into another he says.
There’s always a way for him to blow his own trumpet and this is his method of saying ‘look how great I am’ after bringing in two 21-year-olds who have yet to leave their print on the beautiful game.
No word on how he’s continuously failed in his role? No, I thought not.
