Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has hinted that a large scale squad rebuilding project may be launched by the club in the summer.

Last year's champions are just seventh in the Premier League and, eleven points off a top four place, look certain to miss out on Champions League football for the first time since 1995.

New manager David Moyes is under pressure, but the club look set to back him with a whole host of signings in the summer, Woodward has hinted.

"We are not afraid of moving in the market in a way we haven't seen in recent years", he was quoted as saying by the AP.


"Historically we have had three sales and three purchases each year and it is possible we will do more than that … building a competitive squad that challenges for trophies."

Manchester United could only draw 0-0 against Arsenal last night, a result which leaves them on 42 points from 26 games and even in danger of missing out on European football altogether next term.

That may impact their ability to attract the world's best players in the summer.
