Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has reaffirmed they have a clear recruitment vision ahead of the January transfer window opening.
Recently the club boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told they are looking for new fresh players to improve the squad.
Speaking on the red Devils’ stance, Woodward told: “We have a clear vision in terms of football philosophy and recruitment. The significant investments that we have made in recent years in areas such as transfers, recruitment infrastructure, analytics and our Academy are already beginning to bear fruit. We are very proud to be shortly approaching a milestone 4,000th game featuring an Academy player, and we are particularly optimistic regarding the considerable young talent currently coming through. Our ultimate goal is to win trophies by playing exciting football with a team that fuses graduates from our Academy with world-class acquisitions.”
Despite the clubs down wages and lack of Champions League participation, the commercial and sponsorship revenues have both increased by over £8.5million.
