According to the latest reports, Manchester United chief Ed Woodward could be about to receive a huge transfer window boost.

In Stretford, on the outskirts of Manchester, Old Trafford stands eerily empty. For over two months now, the giant pantheon, the Theatre of Dreams, where so many battles had been fought has remained shut, devoid of human presence. Manchester United no longer grace the field, the football doesn’t roll along the turf and the chants do not echo around the ground. It is a ghost town.

Around the world, giant footballing cathedrals have faced the same plight. Amidst the new crisis, football has fallen down the wayside and the situation has thrown up some unprecedented scenarios.

For Ed Woodward whose position has been precarious at United for some time now, the current situation would have only brought him more toil. With the pressure mounting on the club to get themselves back to the pinnacle of English football, Woodward would have used the upcoming transfer window as the opportunity to supply Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the ammunition necessary to compete with arch rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

The funds to bring in the ammunition has however seemed to have dwindled amidst the crisis. Much uncertainty now surrounds the future of the summer transfer window which would have commenced as early as next month.

However with the football schedule pushed back, the window will be unlike any window ever before.
