Ed Woodward assures Manchester United are determined to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on his vision to rebuild the team.

The Covid-19 outbreak has halted football around the globe. With the 2019/20 European season hanging in the balance, it is unclear when or if the transfer window will open.

In case the transfer window opens, clubs will have to hold their punches in spending money due to the financial crisis brought along by the pandemic.

Manchester United was planning on adding a few new players to their ranks this summer. Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s initial signings have all been successful and he hopes to carry on with his team rebuild plans.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly are a few names linked with the Red Devils.

On the same issue, Ed Woodward admits it won’t be business as usual. He insists Manchester United will be “highly competitive” going in the transfer market.

“It’s always a top priority for us to strengthen the team and build on what Ole is very clearly achieving in terms of bringing us back to the top.” Said Woodward.

“I would say that once we have that visibility of a path through the crisis and coming out of the other side to relative normality, then, of course, we aim to remain highly competitive in the market.”

“As I said before and I’ve said this many times, we remain committed to backing Ole to win trophies. That’s our core objective as a club.”
