Manchester United are determined to back Jose Mourinho with all their resources, Ed Woodward has insisted.
United have raked in a record £590m in revenue for the financial year 2017-18. Despite their shaky start to the season, the Red Devils have also announced a profit of £44.1 m which could be a big boost for the club in near future.
Mourinho and Woodward were at loggerheads over their views in the summer transfer window. Mourinho wanted an established right winger and a central defender to bolster his backline but Woodward’s inability to cater to his gaffer’s demand has somehow affected their relationship.
Unlike all the big teams United were pretty quiet in the transfer window. But with money coming from all sides one could expect a busy January if the club remains on the right path.
Woodward said, “Everyone at the club is working tirelessly to add to Manchester United’s 66 and Jose’s 25 trophies. That is what our passionate fans and our history demands
“We are committed to our philosophy of blending top academy graduates with world class players and are proud that, once again, last season we had more academy graduate minutes on the pitch than any other Premier League club
“Our increased revenue expectation for the year demonstrates our continued strong long-term financial performance which underpins everything we do and allows us to compete for top talent in an increasingly competitive transfer market.”
