Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward believes Bruno Fernandes transfer will be a boost for head coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer for the second part of the season.
Despite being only 8t in the Premier League table, Woodward has mentioned the fact that the club is still playing in the Europa League and FA Cup and targets the trophy in both competitions.
Also, Woodward is sure they are going in the right direction and in next years Manchester United will return to the title race and raise the priorities in the Champions League.
“The signing of Bruno Fernandes and return of key players from injury will be a boost to Ole and the squad as we head into the second half of the season,” Woodward sais (via Football London)
“We remain in contention in the Europa League and the FA Cup, as well as for Champions League qualification, so there is still lots to play for.
“As a club and a board, we do recognise that we are not yet where we want to be.
“It is the overwhelming priority of everyone at the club to get us back to regularly challenging for Premier League and Champions League titles.
“Although progress may not always be smooth, everyone across the club is focused and committed on playing their part in helping achieve those aims.” he added.
Manchester United will visit Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea for their next Premier League match.
