Jones to United – and that may be it for Sir Alex


What Sir Alex Ferguson says, he usually means. We have seen it many times. When he insisted in the past that there’s no value in the market, he kept his cheque book closed despite pressure for him to bring in new faces. It may mean that the reported £16million signing of Phil Jones from Blackburn Rovers could be Manchester United’s final signing of the summer. Why? Because Ferguson has recently been quoted as saying a number of times that “I’m looking at possibly a couple, maybe three signings which would boost our overall quality in the team.”  That makes it abundantly clear that unless there’s an unexpected development in the next few weeks, Jones will join Ashley Young and David de Gea as the three United transfers that Sir Alex is looking for – and that could be it.

It wasn’t an easy game, we went 1-0 down having given them a bad goal but we kept on and we don’t give in. It looked like it was not going to be our day, we’ve always had it difficult here. It is a local derby and they are fighting for their lives looking for that point, but we kept going and that’s a good quality.”

Vidic can't wait to clinch the title at Blackburn


Nemanja Vidic is a point away from hoisting his first trophy as Manchester United captain – and he thanks the Reds’ critics for creating the platform for the achievement. The 30-year-old Serb has also warned rivals of the champions-elect that Sir Alex Ferguson’s much-maligned new generation of players will get even better next season. In Fergie’s era as Old Trafford boss, only Gary Neville in November 2005 walked into a skipper’s job facing a more daunting task in the aftermath of Roy Keane’s controversial exit, Neville took possession of the armband in a time of transition and turmoil.
