"Whether it's a [world] record or not doesn't really resonate with us. What resonates is an elite player that the manager wants who is going to be a star for Manchester United." Ed Woodward
Manchester United's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, has been pretty forthright about Manchester United's transfer-market punch. His words have coincided with coquettish comments from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi about how uncertain are their futures at Real Madrid and Barcelona. It has all added up to speculation that they will one day become recruits to Louis van Gaal's red revolution at Old Trafford that has already seen Angel di María, Falcao, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Víctor Valdés join.
