Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester United will not be making any more signings before the transfer window closes next Friday.

The 19-time English champions have already completed deals for Borussia Dortmund’s Shinji Kagawa, Crewe Alexandra forward Nick Powell, Arsenal captain Robin van Persie and left-back Alexander Buttner.

Ferguson revealed Chilean forward Ángelo Henríquez is set to be United’s final summer signing – and the Reds Devils boss does not expect any players to leave the club, including out-of-favour striker Dimitar Berbatov.

“We definitely won’t be buying anyone,” Ferguson said. “There is no movement about anyone going the other way.”

He added: “There is only a few days left now until the deadline and that will pass quite quickly I would imagine.”

Ferguson admitted United are facing an injury crisis in defence, hinting Patrice Evra could replace Michael Carrick at centre-half for Fulham’s visit to Old Trafford after the midfielder struggled in their 1-0 defeat at Everton on Monday night.

“I need to call [Steve] Bruce and [Gary] Pallister!” joked Ferguson.

“Phil Jones started training yesterday but tomorrow is too soon for him. Robin has had a few days training since Monday. It’s a home game and there’s every chance he could get a start.

“It’s pretty much the same as Monday night injury-wise. Alex will be involved tomorrow because he gives that back-up.

“Evra could actually play centre-back. He has done in the past. But I don’t think Alex will start tomorrow, I think he’ll be on the bench.”
