Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Manchester United is not presently in the market for new summer signings and he is looking at the Old Trafford dressing room to give the answer to the retirement of Paul Scholes.
Samir Nasri, Luka Modric and Wesley Sneijder have all been connected with big-money moves to United at different points in the summer. On the other hand, Nasri comes out bound for Manchester City, whilst some agreements to sign Sneijder or Modric apparently appear too costly for Ferguson to sanction.
Meaning, the United boss can end up going into the latest movement with the players already at his disposal, which would signify the likes of Anderson have to intensify on the hard work of the past years.
Ferguson said, ”We are always looking for good quality players. We started the season with the players we have and I am satisfied with that. We are not looking at the moment but we are looking at combinations of central midfielders now at the club.”
In the mean time, Ferguson has played down proposals Ryan Giggs could become into the target of abuse from opposition fans this season.
The 37-year-old is about to commence his 21st season with the Old Trafford outfit but will do so after a summer of negative headlines. Ferguson has experienced United players get all types of mistreatment in the past, but he does not expect it to happen with Giggs.
He said, ”I am not sure Giggs will get that. He is one of the few players that other fans like. He has their respect. He has never been sent off and he’s had only a few bookings. I don’t see it being a problem.”
