United CEO: No major overhaul needed

New Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has played down the chances of a summer spending spree at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson has previously spoken about his desire to add two players to his squad with Radamel Falcao, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo all reportedly on United’s radar.

And Woodward has agreed with the United manager, highlighting the strength in depth the Premier League champions have available to them.

"I wouldn't expect there to be a major retooling of the squad," Woodward said. "There is incredible depth. We could put two first teams out with 11 internationals in each. It has been a phenomenal season. We are a long way ahead in the Premier League and, whilst I wouldn't describe the way we got knocked out of the Champions League as luck, things could have gone differently in that game.

"We have a young squad and each of those are a year older. We are very comfortable with the make up of team and squad."
