He was speaking as the Old Trafford club announced a 9.9% fall in revenue to £88.7 million for the three months to the end of September. This is thought to be largely down to the lack of Champions League football this year.
The man with overall responsibility for the Red Devils said that while they have transfer targets, it was unlikely that many moves would be made before the summer.
“We are not looking to enter the market for short-term fixes. However, we have targets we are looking at for next summer. Should any of them become available in January, which is obviously rare, we will consider acting.
“But in terms of expectation, we need to recognise it is a low probability.”
Last summer the club spent a massive £150 million on transfers, including a British record £59.7 million for Angel Di Maria, as well as £28 million on Ander Herrera, and £27 million for Luke Shaw. However, it looks like the United faithful will have to wait until the end of the season to see the same kind of money thrown around again – despite the current problems in defence.
