Manchester United chief executive David Gill has confirmed that Sir Alex Ferguson has all the money he needs should he plan on bringing a player to Old Trafford this summer.
The Red Devils have already spent some £20 million on Chris Smalling from Fulham and Javier Hernandez from Guadalajara but the two youngsters are likely to be back-up in their first season in the Theater Of Dreams.
Manchester United supporters world-wide have been frustrated at the lack of star signings following the record-breaking move of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid, with players like Mezut Oezil and Luis Fabiano being linked with a move to the Premier League runners-up.
However, Gill insists Sir Alex has the money to spend should he be interested in a player.
He told The Manchester Evening News:
“The money is there if we believe there is a player who can improve what we believe is a very good squad.”
“The team has been together for a number of years and done very well. In order to improve it a player has to be of a very high quality.”
Gill did not confirm who is on the Manchester United radar but says that United are searching the whole world, all year long looking for the latest talents in world football.
“We are always looking at players. We are looking 365 days a year – it doesn’t just start when the transfer window opens.”
“We are looking at it. We studied a lot of players at the World Cup, but we knew about a lot of them before that.”
“Over all I think Sir Alex is very comfortable with the squad composition. That’s not to say something won’t happen, but I think it is a ‘might’, not a ‘will’.”
“We will see what happens over the next six weeks.”
