Manchester United rule out signings

Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out any more incomings at Manchester United admitting that he missed out on some targets reports the Guardian.

Three players have already been added to the United squad although a replacement for Paul Scholes has so far eluded Ferguson.

Ashley Young, David de Gea and Phil Jones all joined the Red Devils for big money this summer with the United boss fulfilling his goal of adding a youthful core to his side.

However Ferguson still wants a replacement for Scholes, who retired at the end of last season, but admits he’s missed he can’t see that happening.

He told the Guardian: “We lost five players in their 30s this summer. That helped finance the three younger players – Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea – I have brought to the club.

“At this moment, I can’t see another addition. The type of player we might have been looking for is not available. I am happy with the players I have got at this moment in time.”

A new playmaker is still a priority for Ferguson as he strives to replace Scholes. However finances are tight at Old Trafford and moves for Ferguson’s top targets have been considered too expensive.

Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder has been on the Scot’s wish list for some time but his £35 million asking price and looks likely to stay at the San Siro for at least another season.
