Ed Woodward promises new Man Utd signings in coming weeks
Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has promised the fans to expect further new signings in the coming weeks.
United's new boss Louis van Gaal has already spent 56 million pounds on defender Luke Shaw and midfielder Ander Herrera and Woodward has promised that there would be no repeat of last summer's disappointments in the transfer window.
Woodward said that there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes, asking the people to watch this space, The BBC reported.
Woodward had failed to secure the club's key targets last summer, following the appointment of David Moyes as Sir Alex Ferguson 's successor, and ended up signing only Marouane Fellaini for 27 million pounds from Everton before the transfer deadline.
Van Gaal is using the United's current trip to the United States to assess what further changes need to be made in the club and Woodward has promised the funds are in place to back the manager's plans.
Woodward said that there is no fixed budget as they are extremely strong financially and added that they want to do what it takes to win the title.
New arrivals at the club would be accompanied by departures, with Nemanja Vidic having already joined Inter Milan while Rio Ferdinand leaving for Queens Park Rangers and it is anticipated that Patrice Evra would join Juventus imminently, having asked United to leave.
Van Gaal has a ready-made replacement for Evra in Shaw, who became the fourth most expensive defender ever when he made a 27 million pound move from Southampton in June. (ANI)
