According to the Mirror, due to concerns that Woodward may once again become the target of fan attacks, Manchester United will strengthen security measures for him near the deadline for the transfer window.
In January of this year, 20 thugs threw flares, smoke bombs and graffiti at Woodward's Cheshire residence. It is reported that those so-called fans were angry at the club’s lack of transfer operations, even when Manchester United was close to signing Fernandez from Portuguese sports.
Now, as Manchester United cannot match some of the top six competitors in transfer investment, fans are getting more and more angry. They are disappointed that the club did not introduce Sancho.
It is reported that after the attack in January, Woodward has upgraded the security level of his Cheshire residence. As the transfer window will be closed on Monday, security personnel will be fully prepared. Woodward, his wife and two children also have a house near London, where they spend most of the time.
Gary Neville has publicly criticized Woodward's performance in the transfer window, and the club executives are worried that this is an inflammatory remarks, which is disturbing. The Manchester United club emphasized that they are always supporting Solskjaer and said that if it were not for the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the club’s transfer expenses would be higher.
