If there is one person surrounding Manchester United that has taken his initial reputation and turned it upside down, it is none other than executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward.
The then newly appointed man in charge in 2013, had a disastrous start to his fresh role at Old Trafford, after the only player that he managed to sign throughout a summer was Marouane Fellaini. That deal left everyone in shock and kept the fans demanding for much more.
However, Woodward outdid one and all in the seasons to follow, as the transfers he managed were of utmost success, and if the players bought into Manchester United were to be rated, 10/10 would be the unanimous vote.
After bringing in mega names like Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic over the past few seasons, the Stretford End faithful now trust Ed to secure the services of the best talent around the world.
According to the latest reports coming in from Manchester Evening News, Woody has his own wish list of superstars that he wants to bring in this summer, and the names are nothing but good news to the ears of the fans.
Cristiano Ronaldo is top priority at the moment and if that was not enough in itself, the likes of Gareth Bale, Neymar and Thomas Muller are all part of the targeted few.
All of the above mentioned players had previously been linked with Ed Woodward and Manchester United, but they went on and signed contract extensions with their current clubs.
The business heads in Manchester know how to handle business, and any of the said names might be a Red Devil next season, which is brilliant news for the Premier League and English football in Europe.
