David Gill claims Manchester United’s spending is over


Manchester United's transfer window spending is now over, according to the club's chief executive David Gill.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has resisted the temptation to spend big this summer, having brought in just a handful of new signings.

Defender Chris Smalling from Fulham, Mexico starlet Javier Hernandez and Portuguese striker Bebe have been the only arrivals at Old Trafford.

But despite Ferguson still having money available to spend, Gill has declared the summer transfer window closed for the Red Devils.

"Hopefully we've got the right numbers to compete on all fronts for the rest of the year," he explained.

"We've never bought older stars. We turn talented youngsters into top, top stars. We've done it with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Anderson and Nani.

"We think Bebe will fit into that profile so our policy hasn't changed.

"But if there's a player who Sir Alex Ferguson thinks would change things we would go with it."
