Woodward Returns for Transfer Business

It became public knowledge yesterday that our new chief executive Ed Woodward had returned from Australia to conclude some transfer business.

Of course, speculation immediately became rife as to what possible deals could be about to go down.

United, aware of the ongoing commotion surrounding Chelsea`s confirmed bid for Wayne Rooney, were quick to infer Woodward had not returned to discuss a move to West London for the striker.

This morning, one significant member of the tabloid press pack, runs with a story that Manchester United are set to make a very significant bid for Gareth Bale, although his availability is questionable.

Perhaps the most logical reason for Woodward`s return surrounds the bid, earlier this week, for Cesc Fabregas. Having had a bid, said to be 26 million rejected by Barcelona, the consensus of opinion is that an improved bid could very well tempt the Catalan giants to sell, hence the necessary involvement from Ed Woodward.

Although I could be wide of the mark!

Lets hope there's some movement in the Fabregas deal then. I'm hoping its not to do with Garay from Benfica. Although with the way things are going we are probably looking at Jelavic to replace Rooney.

Fabregas wont be coming to OT. I'll be shocked if he does tbh

Probably dotting the I's and crossing the T's on Fellaini's contract. This transfer window has to be one of the most nerve racking one's I remember. Just wish we would announce something anything the lack is driving me mad. Seems like Moyes is doing absolutely sweet FA.

Suspect the vs member who commented on the other article is right, the call back is more to do with sorting the Rooney situation out than any actual transfers. Can't blame Moyes for the club taking its time with transfers, he seemingly just tells Woodward who he wants and then it's up to Woodward to sort out the transfer. If there's anyone to blame for the lack of transfer activity and movement to improve the squad at the moment it's Woodward. If the wrong players come in then its Moyes. I suspect deals are being done its just long drawn out process unless you've got seemingly unlimited funding and can just bow to the demands of the selling club.
