Rio delighted by United’s transfer activity

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has stated that he is happy with the club’s business in the transfer market so far this summer, and has hailed the new players.

The Premier League champions have added Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea to their ranks in the last month, which the veteran feels are positive moves.

“It is just what the club needs. Three of our most experienced players have retired, so the manager has reinforced certain positions on the field. This club is always evolving. That is what has happened since I have been here,” the 32-year-old stated in a press conference in Boston.

“That is what you aim to do. It is not about your personal feelings. It is about the club becoming better and more stable and continuing the success we have had over the years.”

The fact that Sir Alex Ferguson has added youthful additions to the squad is also a decision backed by the England centre back.

“It is great to see young players. We have some very young players coming through the youth team already, so when the manager adds players of quality like Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David de Gea, it can only improve the squad, increase our longevity and continue our success,” he concluded.

The Old Trafford side are currently in the United States to play five friendlies in the build up to the 2011/12 campaign.
