Manchester United’s chief executive leaves Australia for urgent transfer business

Manchester United’s chief executive Ed Woodward has left Australia to attend to urgent transfer business today.

The 40-year-old will travel back to Old Trafford amidst a Wayne Rooney media furore following a rejected bid from Chelsea.

United rejected the bid before Chelsea released a statement denying that any player was involved as part of the deal as negotiations immediately became complicated.

It is a real signal of intent from Woodward that he has flown back and is an indication that the sensitive situation with Rooney has quickly escalated too far for it to be controlled from Sydney.

While Woodward is likely to be flying back as part of United’s attempts to sort out the Rooney situation, he may well be coming back in part to help United’s endeavors to sign the likes of  Cesc Fabregas in what is set to be the busiest transfer window United have had in many years.

Moyes said he was happy with how his transfer targets were progressing so Woodward may well be flying back in order to wrap up some activity for the club in terms of bringing players in.
