Jose Mourinho left fuming with Ed Woodward after strange decision: report

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was left fuming with Ed Woodward after an unusual decision was made regarding the upcoming transfer window.

Rumours have emerged the Portuguese manager will be handed a £100m spending budget in the winter period to come but he remains upset with the vice-executive chairman.

United had invested in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant over the summer with many fans concerned with the small fee of investment.

Mourinho was also publicly frustrated with how the rest of his transfer targets weren’t signed and he was left empty handed.

Woodward has been responsible for signing new players and if reports are to be believed then he overruled the former Chelsea boss.

According to Football365, the Sun report that Jose was left ‘fuming’ with Ed after he cancelled a January transfer target meeting that was meant to happen last week ‘at short notice’.

Although it sounds a little silly it’s also understandable given how long this saga has continued going on.

The Red Devils’ board members should’ve either fully backed Mourinho in the summer or fired him but made the mistake of doing neither.

Nonetheless, time will tell whether the club will make a serious statement in a notoriously difficult transfer market.
