Ed Woodward transfer plan
Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will speak with investors on Tuesday.
And according to the Evening Standard, he will reiterate his plans to invest heavily in the transfer window.
Woodward recently vowed to splash the cash in the summer in a bid to close the gap with Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Old Trafford chief will discuss the club’s quarterly results to the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday and will be obliged to answer questions from investors.
Edinson Cavani to Manchester United
Manchester United should sign Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani.
That’s according to Robin van Persie, who believes the Uruguayan is a ‘goal machine’ and could bag over 25 goals each season.
Cavani, who earns an astonishing £360,000 a week and will demand similar from his next club, is set to leave the Parc des Princes after seven trophy-laden seasons and 200 goals for PSG.
“Edinson Cavani. I would definitely go for Cavani; he’s very fit, he’s a proven goalscorer, a goal machine, he has proven it at Napoli, PSG and Uruguay,” RVP told SPORTbible.
“With him, if he starts, he will get you 25 goals a season. I’ve watched him play, I’ve played against him, he is like a proper goalscorer. He lives by scoring goals so I’d go for him.”
Jadon Sancho deal
Liverpool have been tipped to complete a transfer for Jadon Sancho but only if one of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino leave Anfield this summer.
The England international is widely expected to leave Borussia Dortmund with Manchester United also interested.
On a recent episode of The Agenda podcast, Caoimhe O’Neill discussed what it would take for Liverpool to seal a deal for Sancho though.
She said: “You feel like if Sancho was to move to Liverpool, it would have to be at a cost of losing Firmino, Mane or Salah, because Liverpool are quite precise in the transfer window.”
