Manchester United chief executive David Gill has indicated the club could yet sign one more player before the transfer window closes.English Premier League champions United have already strengthened heavily since winning a record 19th championship in May, spending heavily on goalkeeper David De Gea, defender Phil Jones and winger Ashley Young.
Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder and Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri have both been linked with moves to Old Trafford during the close season.
And while manager Sir Alex Ferguson suggested earlier this week there would no further acquisitions, Gill claims United remain active in the market.
“We’re looking at one more player to bring in,” Gill said.
“Nothing’s happening – nothing imminent – on that at the moment, but we’ll see what happens when we get home (from the tour of America).”
“There’ll be 31 days of the transfer window to see if anything develops. But I’m not working on anything at the moment, in that respect.”
Gill said United would only be looking to sign a ‘world-class player’, fuelling more rumours that Netherlands international Sneijder could yet join the club.
“The important thing to understand, and Alex has made it clear, is that we need someone who’s going to improve the quality of the squad,” he said.
“We’ve got a great squad and to get into that squad you need to be a world-class player.”
“There’s no point, if you can’t get the players you want, in buying someone for the sake of buying someone.”
