Sir Alex Ferguson is adamant Manchester United won’t be bringing new players in January despite Wayne Rooney’s request for new signings.
Sir Alex Ferguson made it clear who was the boss yesterday by saying United wouldn’t be buying new players in January.
“We won’t be buying in January, definitely not,” said Ferguson, “You are limited because there are hundreds of players cup-tied for European football.
“There will be five months of the season left and we will be getting a new player back in February with Antonio Valencia returning from injury, and maybe another in Owen Hargreaves. With the squad I’ve got, I don’t see any reason for us to buy anyone.
“There has always been money to spend but it doesn’t necessarily mean there will be more transfer activity than normal in the summer. We will buy what we need to buy. We know what we need.
“There is always this issue if Van der Sar, Scholes, Giggs or Neville were to retire but we’ve been aware of that for two or three years and we are well ahead of that. We know exactly what we have to do.”
