Woodward expected to leave Man Utd this summer

Ed Woodward isn't expected to be with Manchester United for the beginning of next season.

The Manchester Evening News says Woodward is expected to leave United in the summer, rather than at the end of the year.

Although the United statement confirming his departure said Woodward would step down at 'the end of 2021', Woodward is likelier to leave his post in the summer.

It was Woodward's intention for this season to be his last full campaign with United and the club said the announcement was brought forward as news of Woodward's resignation had leaked online.

The timing of the Woodward announcement coincided with United's withdrawal from the doomed Super League on Tuesday night, bringing an end to a dramatic 48 hours in the club's modern history.
