Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has told fans to “watch this space” as he works with manager Louis van Gaal on making more summer signings.
Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw have already joined the Reds and Woodward revealed funds are available for the club to bring in more new faces.
But he also admits some players could be on their way out of Old Trafford as van Gaal moulds his new squad over the coming weeks.
“We’ve been working with Louis over several weeks with regards to targets and we’re continuing to move forward on some of those targets,” Woodward told MUTV‘s Stewart Gardner in Los Angeles.
“We are still a huge attraction to top football stars around the world – there is no doubt about that. I hope [fans] will see the direction we’re heading in with the new manager, coaching staff and players, and a commitment to do what it takes to get back to the top.
“We are willing to invest. There is no fixed budget. Financially we are extremely strong and funds are available. Louis is assessing what’s going on and there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes, so watch this space.”
Asked if other players could be leaving United, Woodward added: “Yes, I think so. The manager makes that decision. A few players have already gone and there may well be a few others.
“It’s also worth commenting that we’re not in Europe this year, so there are fewer games and Louis may take the view that he wants a tighter squad to bed in.
“If you do the analysis over the last year, Liverpool performed extremely well with a smaller number of players, but that’s a decision for the manager.”
While reluctant to set a target for the 2014/15 campaign, Woodward is determined United will return to Europe and challenge for trophies again sooner rather than later.
“We’re a club that absolutely should be in the Champions League,” he said. “That’s what our fans want, that’s what our players want and that’s what every member of staff wants.
“We have to strive to win. We’re not here to be an also-ran; we’re here to win trophies to add to that huge, incredible list that we’ve won over many years.”
