Man United transfers: Sir Alex Ferguson rules out any more signings
Man United transfers: Sir Alex Ferguson reveals he will not be making any more signings and also expects no players to leave
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.”
