Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward suggests that the club will not be making any big-money signings this summer.

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has suggested that the club will not be making any big-money signings before the end of this summer's transfer window.

Donny van de Beek capped his debut for the 20-time English champions with a goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday, but the Red Devils fell to a 3-1 home defeat at Old Trafford.

Jadon Sancho continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford, but it remains to be seen whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side can agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund, who are thought to want in excess of £100m.

Woodward has hinted that the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak will make it very difficult for United to make a big-money signing in the current market.

"Disruption from the pandemic is continuing to create huge economic pressure from the top to the bottom of the football pyramid and while we are fortunate to be in a more resilient position than most clubs, we are not immune from impact," wrote Woodward in the club's programme.

As well as Sancho, United are also being linked with Porto defender Alex Telles.
