Manchester United's chief executive David Gill says team overhaul will happen in summer

By Dean Wilkins

Manchester United’s chief executive David Gill is insisting that a summer overhaul will take place after an exhilarating title climax.

The Reds are close to clinching their 13th Premier League title in 20 years after another triumphant season, despite many criticising the strength of their players and team.

Gill said this summer will be an interesting one after a tense climax to the title challenge and that the team will see an important reshuffle.

Gill told manutd.com: "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."

He added: “The work goes on all year round but obviously intensifies as we come to the end of the season in terms of players.”

When questioned about this season’s Premier League Gill said: "It's been an amazing run and it's going to be a tense end to the season. If we [win], 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."
