It is infuriating that Manchester United need investment with the transfer window in its final stages, but the Glazer family has other priorities at present.
The search for a new shirt sponsor is reportedly a concern as The Telegraph claims co-owner Avram Glazer is in Switzerland trying to network and find a new sponsor.
United are said to have representatives at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
The report states: “A nine-strong group of United executives, led by co-chairman Avram Glazer and group managing director, Richard Arnold, attended the World Economic Forum.
“For a club looking for a new shirt sponsor, with their existing £357m deal with Chevrolet due to end in 2021 and no guarantees the US car giant will renew, Davos represents a target rich environment for big money commercial signings.”
Woodward was not in attendance for Wednesday’s night 2-0 defeat against Burnley at Old Trafford, where fans sang a number of chants about the executive vice-chairman and the Glazer family, however the report does not state if he was amid the party in Davos.
One of the problems we’re seeing in the transfer market is United unwillingness to meet demands with other clubs, which suggests that there is not enough money to spend.
Haggling over deals this month as well as last summer, this update shows what the Glazers are interested in money and nothing else.
Hardly news for a United supporter.
A nine-strong delegation should be in Portugal and securing a deal to sign Bruno Fernandes.
