Gill set for busy summer

David Gill admits it will be an interesting summer after an exciting, if tense, end to the campaign.

The club's chief executive, speaking on a visit of various local projects that formed part of the Manchester United Foundation's Impact Report, is obviously hoping Sir Alex's side hold their nerve in the title run-in before conducting any business regarding transfers and new contracts during the close season.

In an exclusive interview with ManUtd.com, Gill was asked if he would have settled for the current position of chasing a 13th title in 20 years when the Barclays Premier League commenced. "I think we all would," he replied. "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."

When quizzed on whether it will be another busy summer in terms of any deals and contracts, he stressed: "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."

More from David Gill will appear in Friday's Red View newsletter and Sunday's official matchday programme.
