Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been told that he can splash out in the January transfer window, despite already spending a huge amount of money in the summer, after Man Utd posted a record turnover in their end of year accounts from last season, as reported by Goal.com.
The boss has been given the green light to carry on with his vast outlay during the coming transfer window, despite the club’s slow start to the new campaign.
Chief executive Ed Woodward would not go as far as to state an exact figure or where the outlay would go, but confirmed that Van Gaal would have a license to spend if the situation arose.
He said: “I wouldn’t have expectations for January but, if there is a willingness from the manager, we will engage with him and if there an opportunity, we will try and take that as we did last year with Juan Mata.”
Man Utd have struggled since the start of the new season, failing to win a single competitive match under new boss Van Gaal. Aside from a loss and two draws in the Premier League, they also suffered a 4-0 humbling against MK Dons in the League Cup.
