The news announced, by Manchester United, last week relating to the latest financial results will have given supporters cause for concern.
Such has been the impact a lack of Champions League football has had, coupled with the ongoing financial implications of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Old Trafford support was told that the overall debt had risen, to a staggering amount of £429 million.
With the debt having increased by £127.4 million and with clubs, in general, tightening their belts, thoughts were cast towards a restriction on spending in the summer transfer window.
However, whilst we don’t expect Manchester United to break the bank, this summer, it is pleasing to read, courtesy of The Express that Ole Gunnar Soljskaer will be given sufficient funds to remain competitive in the transfer market.
It’s fair to say that the board, and all credit to them, have always backed Solksjaer in the transfer market with the Norwegian being able to add the likes of – Harry Maguire, Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Bruno Fernandes to the squad.
However, whilst some kind of guarantee has been given, it’ll be interesting to see whether the likes of Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish and Jude Bellingham can be added to the squad this summer or whether a far more cautious approach may need to be adopted.
