Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make huge transfer decision: report

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward have made a huge transfer policy decision ahead of a crucial summer window.

The Norwegian has insisted he plans on bringing the current crop of players up to standard by making gradual changes rather than a complete overhaul.

Woodward has had a bit of a reputation as a poor decision maker who has a tendency to make ‘Galactico’ signings.

United will need both these key club figures to turn the current situation around by making smarter choices in the transfer market.

Fans will now see how Solskjaer will operate in his first transfer window since being made permanent manager.

According to the Independent, Ed and Ole want more young, British players at Old Trafford next season, sparking a change from their previous transfer policies.

As good a policy as it is, British players are likely to cost more with Premier League clubs unlikely to want to part with their upcoming homegrown stars.

Manchester United have already ran into that problem with Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Leicester City’s James Maddison.

The Foxes want at least £60m for their star while the London club want a record £70m for their defender.
