Ed Woodward defines Manchester United's upcoming transfer window with two words in message to fans

Ed Woodward has said that Manchester United will approach the summer transfer window with "extra caution". Football clubs are feeling the financial effects of the coronavirus. United's growth around the globe and commercial might has allowed them to handle the pandemic better than most. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is keen to strengthen the squad where they can. The likes of Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish have both been linked with a move to Old Trafford. And while Woodward has highlighted the financial strength of the club he has urged fans not to expect huge sums to be shelled out. He wrote in his programme notes: "The ongoing disruption from the pandemic – and the economic pressures it has created – has shown why it is so important for football clubs to focus on their financial stability," he added. "We are fortunate to have a strong and resilient commercial business which has supported long-term investment in our team. That will continue, albeit with extra caution in the coming months as we navigate our way through this uncertain period." United have spent around £200m on four players over the past two transfer windows - including Harry Maguire's world-record deal for a defender. Source: Mirror
