Summer transfers are always controversial and full of suspense. The whole footballing world have their eyes set on only a few things: which team will spend the most, which superstar agrees to a mega-money move and who splashes the cash on the ‘next big thing’ (or to be precise, every wonder-kid attacker touted the next Messi or Ronaldo). It is shocking to say that our beautiful game has become the race against business big-wigs on who will outbid and out-pay each other in a race to get their man. The best example being last season, when many cash rich clubs showed their financial might by nearly revamping their squad or adding few marquee names to an already star-studded squad.
To conclude, United will have to change their approach in the transfer market and become aggressive rather than being cautious, and will have to spend big, spend fast and try to complete deals before the World Cup starts. If United want to be back on the summit of European football they will have start spending. What’s the point in being the richest club and not backing the manager with more transfer funds and getting deals done? After all, it is for the immediate success of the club. In business terms, you won’t get a return on investment or make profit if you don’t invest enough.
