Vice chairman predicts Man Utd will be active in summer transfer market

Manchester United will be active in the summer transfer window, but not in "huge numbers" according to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. "It's fair to say we are focused on strengthening the squad and looking at some players to sell."

He warned large-scale changes could "destabilise" the team but insisted: "We're not afraid to move in the market in a way we haven't in recent years."

Woodward assumed the responsibilities of chief executive when David Gill departed in the summer after 10 years in the post.

He said: "Historically, we've had roughly three sales and three purchases each year, and it's possible we'll do more than that. It's a dynamic situation.

"We're not in the position we want to be in and we're working hard to change that. We will invest in our squad as needed to make sure we're competing at the highest level.

"Our focus is on building a competitive squad to challenge for trophies. We have the ability to buy players... to make sure we are competing at the top level."
