Manchester Uniteda s CEO Ed Woodward has promised the fans a a busya transfer window while claiming that he will ensure that Van Gaal has a a deepa squad at his disposal in order to compete for all the trophies in all the competitions.
Woodward highlighted the fact that Manchester United are well poised to make a return to Champions League football while stating that the club is preparing itself for a busy transfer period.
“The squad will be absolutely deep enough and ready to challenge on all fronts and all competitions next year. That will as ever involve some ins and outs which we will not guide on.a
a We are delighted with the progress made under Louis as first-team manager. With two games remaining we are well-positioned to achieve a top-four finish in the Premier League and therefore return to European football next season.a
So while Ed Woodward has promised the fans a busy transfer window for the club, here are three concerns that will likely keep him worried along with manager Louis Van Gaal.
David De Gea
De Gea-Will He Stay Put At Old Trafford
Manchester United are likely to target David De Geaa s contract extension as its primary summer target as getting the Spanish goal-keeper to sign on the dotted line will be as good as procuring a top player in the market. With just a season left on his contract, rumours have linked De Gea with a return to Madrid, portraying him as the successor to Iker Casillas at Real Madrid. The fact that Real Madrid are a desperatea to bring a new goal-keeper only makes the matter worse for Ed Woodward who has reportedly made a great offer to De Gea.
Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao
End Of The Road For Falcao and Van Persie?
Manchester Uniteda s leading strikers have had a disappointing season under Louis Van Gaal and Ed Woodward will be keen to bring in a top striker while having to deal with the unpleasant business concerning Falcao and Van Persie. Manchester Uniteda s biggest signing (on loan), Falcao seems to be on his way out as he has failed to inspire any confidence in Van Gaal. Despite being given repeated chances at Old Trafford, Falcao has failed to make any impact and is sure to leave Manchester United this summer.
Van Persie on the other hand has a tough task ahead of him in order to convince Van Gaal to give him a contract extension. Past 30, Van Persie has had two miserable seasons for the Red Devils and could well on a downward spiral, sparking suggestions that United will look to let him leave with a year left on his contract.
The Next Michael Carrick
Louis Van Gaal has admitted that though Carrick in still an integral member of the squad at Manchester United, there is an urgent need to find his replacement in order to ensure that the club has the squad to fight for titles. It is not surprising that Uniteda s bad spells this season have coincided with Carricka s injury. A huge influence in the midfield, United need to spend a biga in order to procure a top talent in order to compliment the squad at Van Gaala s disposal.
