Manchester United could be set for an exciting summer.

It is the period when Ed Woodward comes to the forefront. Throughout every twelve months in the year, the Manchester United chief is perpetually busy, taking and receiving calls, negotiating for new recruits. However, in the summer Ed Woodward is undeniably the busiest.

Despite his constant work, for the past few years, Woodward has failed to live up to the club’s expectations. The Red Devils are always desperate to recruit the best players and the most exciting talent.

And while Woodward has lured some impressive names to Old Trafford, he has also missed out on some key targets, while some of his marquees signings have been major disappointments.

16 year old Jude Bellingham would also be an exciting addition however, with the young Birmingham star regarded as one of the most promising English youngsters at the moment.

Van de Beek meanwhile could be the icing on the cake. The Ajax midfielder has been targeted by Real Madrid and is a star for both club and country. The prospect of him forming a partnership with Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes is an enticing one.
