Ed Woodward has promised Manchester United fans that the club is working round the clock in bringing the club back to his glory day after a trophyless season.
United released a record revenue of £590million for the fourth quarter in their latest financial results and Woodward promised he would attempt to meet supporters’ expectations despite an ‘increasingly competitive transfer market’.
“Everyone at the club is working tirelessly to add to Manchester United’s 66 and Jose’s 25 trophies,” Woodward said. “That is what our passionate fans and our history demands.
“We are committed to our philosophy of blending top academy graduates with world-class players and are proud that, once again, last season we had more academy graduate minutes on the pitch than any other Premier League club.
“Our increased revenue expectation for the year demonstrates our continued strong long-term financial performance which underpins everything we do and allows us to compete for top talent in an increasingly competitive transfer market.”
United only spent £72.7m in the summer transfer window on Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant but failed to secure the services of Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Leicester centre-half Harry Maguire which were on the top wishlist of Jose Mourinho.
