Manchester United football chiefs have confirmed to a fans forum that international stars are asking about the club ahead of the summer market.
The Manchester Evening News says football director John Murtough and technical director Darren Fletcher dialled into the last fans' forum on April 16 and, in the minutes that list the speakers as 'JM&DF', it reads: "Darren noted that they had heard that from players going away with England [and] other national teams that people have started to ask questions about Manchester United again."
Murtough is quoted as saying on transfers: "The recruitment department need to focus on bringing in players for tomorrow, those who have potential and for today, those who are ready to play for the first team now.
"The scouting team work closely with Ole to produce options for consideration based on the type of profile which Ole feels that the team needs. Ole has a veto, because as a club we will not sign a player that a manager doesn't want.
"The club has always backed its manager in the transfer market. It's evident from what's gone on over the last two or three seasons that there has been a structured and disciplined approach to player recruitment.
"The transfer market will be challenging in the next 12 months but when the right players are available, which fit our profile, for the right values, will be in and around those opportunities as and when they arise."
