The Blades announced a week ago that former chief executive Winter would be returning for a second spell at Bramall Lane.

He heads the football club's slimmed down three-man board alongside director Scott McCabe and chairman David Green in a reshuffle aimed at attracting new investment, money which would be ploughed straight into the first team.

Winter told United's official website: "Basically the club has a tremendous infrastructure and a lot of money has been spent over the years in putting such facilities in place.

"In order for someone to acquire this club and all its real estate would take a real considerable amount of money. But if investment arrives it will be to support first-team operations, from there we could scale our model accordingly.

"When I originally joined the club we had a sizeable squad and created a financial model that wraps around the football side, dependent on divisional status. Over a period of a time you have to transition into that working model, if investment arrives we could scale up.

"There are always people interested in football clubs; in my first year here we had a lot of people purporting to have a real interest. The recent re-organisation (of the football club board) makes the proposition a lot simpler."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
