Ed Woodward, the transfer chief at Manchester United, is still fuming over two ‘painful’ signings he assisted with.

Ed Woodward, the manager of Manchester United, will resign in April.

As he prepares to step down and leave Old Trafford, Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is reportedly still enraged over the signings of Morgan Schneiderlin and Daley Blind.

In April, Woodward will step down as CEO and be succeeded by Richard Arnold.

Since being appointed in 2013, Woodward has presided over a disappointing period for United, both on and off the field.

The Red Devils have plummeted from grace and can no longer be considered serious title contenders in the Premier League.

United has finished outside the top four in the Premier League four times since Woodward joined the club.

After falling to seventh place in the table, they may face the same fate this season.

During his ill-fated reign, Woodward had final transfer sign-offs and was responsible for some terrible signings as the man in charge.

United spent a lot of money on players like Alexis Sanchez, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Marouane Fellaini, who all failed to live up to their expectations in the north west.

And there were a slew of other players who didn’t make the cut.

Schneiderlin and Blind are the two signings that still bother the current manager, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Blind joined Manchester United for £13.8 million from Ajax in 2014 and was a regular under Louis van Gaal.

After making 141 appearances for United, the versatile Dutch international fell out of favor under Jose Mourinho and was shipped back to Ajax.

Schneiderlin, on the other hand, joined United from Southampton in 2015 for a fee of around £25 million.

Under the weight of his hefty price tag, the France international flattered to deceive at Old Trafford after impressing with the Saints.

He appeared 39 times in Van Gaal’s first season, but he didn’t play much after the Dutchman was fired.

And 18 months after joining United, he was shipped off to Everton.

Woodward’s failures in the transfer market have unmistakably contributed to United’s demise, and his tenure at Old Trafford will be remembered as anything but fruitful.

In fact, Bruno Fernandes could be considered United’s only true top signing in recent years.

The signing of Fernandes was a brilliant move, even if the Portugal midfielder has had a quiet season.
