Woodward brokering a deal?

United are reportedly set to bid for Chelsea’s Juan Mata according to reports. If the Reds are to have any chance of convincing Jose Mourinho to part with the playmaker, then executive vice-chairman Edward Woodward will have to improve on his horror show during the last transfer window, which saw Cesc Fabregas pursued somewhat pointlessly and Marouane Fellaini bought for similar reasons.

Woodward was at Stamford Bridge on Sunday for United’s defeat to Chelsea as shown by this exclusive pic taken after the game, will he be back there to sign a deal for Mata? I certainly hope so as the Spaniard is exactly the type of creative player United need and although figures of £40 million have been bandied about, Mata may just be worth it.
