Ed Woodward insists Manchester United will remain ‘competitive’ in the transfer market.

The club’s vice-chairman admitted last week that he didn’t expect it to be ‘business as usual’ this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While Woodward remains unsettled by transfer talk, the executive vice-chairman says the club are aiming to be active over summer.

“It feels somewhat inappropriate to see speculation about transfers for hundreds of millions in current circumstances,” Woodward said at a Manchester United fans’ forum.

“There’s a big disconnect between those stories and the economic realities facing football clubs in general.

“Clearly it’s true we are fortunate to be in a strong financial position compared to many clubs, but we are not immune from the financial impact of what this virus is doing.

“I would say that once we have that visibility of a path through the crisis and coming out of the other side to relative normality, then of course, we aim to remain highly competitive in the market.”

United have been linked with a number of players, including Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane.
