United will not break the bench for any transfer

first_imgThe coronavirus crisis has stopped football, club revenue, and thus also dropping transfer market prices. This decline for some will become an opportunity to get players who want at a cheaper price than expected but, in general, The big deals don’t seem like they’re going to happen this summer.One of those that has already been ruled out to undertake large investments in a single player has been Manchester United through its vice president Ed Woodward. In a telematic meeting with fans, he assured that this crisis is hitting Old Trafford hard and that they will not be able to turn into a red devil anyone for whom they have to sign a transfer that goes up to a hundred million pounds.“No one should be under any illusion given the challenge ahead of us in football. Businesses will not be the usual for any club, including ours, in the transfer market. Sure, our goal is team success, but we need to know the impact across the industry, the transfer market dates and a broader financial picture before we can speak back to normal. I’m not going to feed a player’s transfer speculation for hundreds of pounds this summer, which seems to ignore the reality that sport will have to face, “assured the president. Objectives that remain, but not at any priceIn the face of this crisis, Woodward aims to be more pragmatic in the signings and warns the clubs where their goals are for this transfer market that they will not invest in the same way as in previous summers. Does this get you off the bid? According to the English press it seems not.United have several clear objectives such as Harry Kane (Tottenham), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) and Jude Bellingham (Birmingham) for which they point that it will bid, but without exceeding. Levy wanted a transfer of 200 million for Kane and Dortmund set Sancho’s bar around 100. Figures that United has already warned will not come.last_img
