I can’t believe that United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has finished his summer spending already. Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia and Gabriel Obertan are the only arrivals at United this summer and it looked like we would be signing a superstar as well.
Unfortunately for the United faithful there will be no more arrivals at Old Trafford. Sir Alex has put this down to the transfer market catching fire and players value being inflated this summer. So players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sergio Aguero and Douglas Costa will not be plying their trade at the Theatre of Dreams next season.
I have faith in Fergie though and he will know his players better than anybody else. If he believes that his current squad of players is good enough for Premier League and Champions League domination then I would never back against him.
However if this season is a disappointment and United don’t win their record breaking 19th league title, then there will be questions asked over why SAF didn’t secure more signings with the massive amount of money he received for the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid earlier this summer. We do have some talented youngsters coming through and hopefully the likes of Danny Welbeck and Darron Gibson can develop into first team regulars next season.
