This must be one of those rare summers where Old Trafford is bathed in tranquility, free from drama and anguish as the transfer window tightens it’s almighty grip on rival clubs. And whilst Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell breezed through the entrance to the United’s esteemed home the departure lounge is log jammed. Having sanctioned the exit of Michael Owen, Richie De Laet and Tomasz Kuszczak, also permitting Fabio to join former United star Mark Hughes at Loftus Road on loan, Sir Alex Ferguson continues to finely trim his squad ahead of the new season. Although the two most recent players to abscond from the Red Devils will come as a great disappointment to 70-year-old. Firstly teenager Paul Pogba was allowed to continue his burgeoning career in Italy after a fractious time at the club that caused Ferguson to blast him a lack of respect but he will have been saddened that he never got to see Pogba flourish under his watch. Then theres Park Ji Sung who’s work ethic and determination saw him become a dependable asset for Ferguson and will be a huge miss to the Scot. The question who will be the next to leave United.

“We always try to get our work done at the end of the season – we spent a good deal of time sorting the deal with Shinji and we’d agreed a deal with Nick Powell before the play-offs which was a good move by us because the boy had an outstanding final at Wembley.
“When you don’t get deals done immediately and you’re negotiating with a club over a long period, then you can’t expect to just snap your fingers and get it done.” Sir Alex Ferguson admits he is keen to bolster his squad further this summer
