Manchester United rule out January transfers

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out the Red Devils making any big signings in the January transfer window, as reported by Sky Sports.

Ferguson has been linked with a variety of players in the new year including Wesley Sneijder, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski but the United boss has rubbished those reports.

The long term United manger has told supporters that he doesn’t expect to make any significant moves in the upcoming transfer window but that is not the first time fans have been told that.

Ferguson is not a fan of the January transfer window but he does expect clubs to be panic buying once again after seeing their teams underperform in the first half of the season.

Some say that the table toppers will need to acquire some more talent next month but Ferguson disagrees while writing his weekly column for the official United programme.

“Don’t hold your breath waiting for Manchester United to jump through the transfer window when it opens next week,” Ferguson stated in his programme notes.

“It’s been open season to link us with a stack of players, admittedly some very good ones, but it just isn’t going to happen.

“You can never say never in football because you don’t know who might become available but, speaking generally, I am not looking to do any serious transfer business in January. I don’t have to because I am more than satisfied with the players I have in my squad, a group as good as any I have had in my time at Old Trafford.

“We won’t be dashing around in a panic.

“Of course, as always, we will be on the lookout for young players of potential who we can develop.

“We have always done that and it’s the main reason why we never have to buy out of desperation. We always work for the future as well as trying our best to produce winning teams for the present.”
