Man Utd to take disciplined approach to summer transfers

Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United will take the "same planned, disciplined approach" to transfers this summer after making three signings in January's window.
Bruno Fernandes signed for £47m a day before the window closed with Odion Ighalo and Nathan Bishop both arriving on deadline day.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said the club had been "linked in the media to 111 players in January".
He also said boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would continue the club's "vision".
Woodward added: "Despite being linked in the media to 111 players in January, our acquisition of just one of them - Bruno Fernandes - is an important step, demonstrating our commitment to adding experienced, world-class recruits to the exciting crop of academy graduates that are at the heart of this developing team.
"We will take the same planned, disciplined, approach this coming summer.
"In addition to the first-team signings, somewhat under the radar, we have also made a number of exciting youth acquisitions in the past year, reflecting our commitment to bringing the best talent into our Academy."
Woodward's comments came after United announced an 11.6% drop in revenues in the six months to December, which it explained was because of the team's absence from this season's Champions League.
United are unbeaten in five games since they agreed with a deal to sign Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon on 29 January.
Two Premier League wins and a draw since the Portuguese midfielder made his debut have lifted the club to fifth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Fernandes' arrival appears to have given the club a much-needed boost, especially after a home defeat by Burnley on 22 January and an attack by fans on Woodward's home.
It also comes at a time when there is uncertainty about the future of record signing Paul Pogba.
