Sir Alex Ferguson says Manchester United will look to bring in “one or two” players during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have already been linked with a host of potential targets despite the current United squad winning the club’s 13th Premier League title at a canter.

Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and Borussia Dortmund’s prolific Poland international Robert Lewandowski are among the names being linked with a switch to Old Trafford at the end of the season.

But Ferguson insists he is largely happy with his squad, especially the Red Devils’ youngsters, and doesn’t envisage many new arrivals this summer.

“We’ve been doing that [planning for next season] for a while,” Ferguson said.

“Your scouting goes on for the full season, actually sometimes two seasons when you maybe monitor a younger player.

“You want to see how he does the next season. That is the process we go through. We’ve got some ideas where we’re going and hopefully we can conclude them.

“We’ll look at one or two bodies to come in. You’ve got to remember there are a lot of young players we expect to improve and take that into consideration. And you have to consider ages of players and protect that part.

“In the main, we’re know where we are. We’re comfortable.

“We have fantastic strength in depth. That’s the area where we don’t want to confuse ourselves because you end up with too many players and trying to keep them all happy. It’s happened a few times this season.”
