Manchester United will again spend a lot of money this summer after he admits that more is needed than the signing of Bruno Fernandes to turn them into title candidates.
Fernandes moved to Old Trafford last month in a deal of up to £ 67.8 million after United paid £ 145 million last summer for Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James.
British chief Ed Woodward accepts that more investments will be needed to breathe new life into the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team, and acknowledged that this summer will be an important period in the process.

In his introductory comments to a recent fan forum, Woodward said: “The signing of Bruno Fernandes and the return of major players from injury will be a boost for Ole and the team as we enter the second half of the season.
“We will continue to compete in the Europa League and the FA Cup, as well as for the Champions League qualification, so there is still a lot to play.
“As a club and board, we recognize that we are not yet where we want to be.
