Woodward admits Manchester United may work Chinese transfer market

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward says the Chinese transfer market can be useful.

Woodward is not fazed by the prospect of losing his top stars to the Chinese Super League, where Alex Teixeira, Ramires and Jackson Martinez have moved recently.

But China could be used as a tool to get rid of any deadwood that needs to be discarded.

“I do think there will be more activity coming in the summer, but it is very difficult to predict what kind of impact that will have,” United’s executive vice-chairman said in a conference call with investors on Thursday.

“If nothing else, it’s another useful market if we are looking to sell players.”
