Woodward Set To Discuss Man United’s Transfer Plans With Investors As Griezmann And Danny Rose Is Constantly Linked

Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is getting ready to address the investors in the New York Stock exchange next week. Along with other things on his agenda, Woodward is expected to raise the topic of January transfer plans, according to Manchester Evening News.

The club’s quarterly results will be put up by Woodward for the investors next Thursday and will be quizzed regarding the financial plans. High on the agenda would be the plan regarding how the next transfer window is going to pan out.

Jose Mourinho’s side has made a good start to the season but has lost the steam in the last couple of rounds. The 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before the international break left United 8 points behind runaway leaders Manchester City.

Experts believe that it is City’s title for the taking and that it would take a monumental collapse from them to surrender it to someone else. But, as United legend Roy Keane pointed out last week, it is in City’s DNA to slip up.

However, for that to happen, Mourinho believes that his squad needs to be strengthened. Despite spending heavily in the summer, Mourinho feels that he needs to dip into the market once again to secure the wide player that he so desperately wanted last time out.

Some names that keep popping up are Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and Tottenham’s Danny Rose, but it looks highly unlikely that either of them will move in January.

Atletico are on the brink of elimination in the Champions League group stage which provides some hope for Mourinho that a deal for his long-term target Griezmann could materialise.

Rose, who recently made his comeback from injury, is looking for a move out of White Hart Lane after criticising the tight wage structure at the club.

Woodward may not get into specific deals and transfer plans but could outline the growing commitment towards supporting the manager. Last financial year saw United post record revenue and operating profits, which is a testimony to the club’s ever-growing spending potential.

Will Woodward talk about backing Mourinho in the January window? What do you think?
