David Gill: Manchester United set for 'interesting' summer transfer window

The Red Devil's chief executive has revealed that a number of acquisitions could be made and expressed excitement at a "tense" end to the Premier League season
Manchester United chief executive David Gill has revealed the club is set for an "interesting" summer transfer window.

Speaking to the club's official website, Gill, who has been with United since 1997, explained that work on potential transfer targets is being stepped up as the season comes to a close.

He said: "We're looking at all that. The work goes on all year round but obviously intensifies as we come to the end of the season in terms of players.

"There's various contracts we've got to do, we'll look at some acquisitions and there will be some players who will leave. It's an interesting time."

With the Red Devils currently five points clear of rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson's men appear favorites to seal a 20th league title.

When asked whether he would have taken this position at the start of the season, Gill replied favoriably.

"I think we all would," he said. "It's been an amazing run and it's going to be a tense end to the season. If we do it, it will be fantastic. This time of year's not good [for the nerves]. You do get tense but we've done very well and are in good shape now - five points ahead with four games to go. It's going to be tight but it's been wonderful."
