Ed Woodward is reportedly to have wish list of four “fantasy signings” that he would love to bring to Manchester United if possible.
Woodward was established as the club’s executive vice-chairman in 2012, and was placed in charge of transfers at Old Trafford the next summer.
His record is frequently criticised, with Marouane Fellaini the only major signing in his first year, while pursuits for Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Gareth Bale have all been public and seen as embarrassing failures.

United have made just one signing so far this summer, and that is defender Victor Lindelof, but Woodward has a list of four players that he ‘dreams’ of bringing to the Old Trafford. 
On top the said list is Cristiano Ronaldo, who is now potentially available after reports claimed that he was ‘sad’ at Real Madrid and looking to leave the club. 
The Portugal international could cost from around £847m to £122m however, and so the delicate and costly nature of negotiations could likely discouraged any club at the moment. 
Woodward chased a move to bring Ronaldo back to United in 2013, but the 32-year-old preferred staying in Spain. The striker is one out of the four players the executive vice-chairman ‘dreams’ of signing, however.
James Robson of the Manchester Evening News claims that Woodward has a shortlist of ‘fantasy’ signings, including one of Ronaldo’s teammates. He writes:
“Ronaldo is in a bracket of fantasy signings Woodward dreams of delivering to investors on the New York Stock Exchange that also includes Gareth Bale, Neymar and Thomas Muller.”
