Fergie won’t go shopping in January sales

January 1, 2011

LONDON: Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out a spending spree in the January sales.

United are in pole position to regain the Premier League title as they go into 2011 on top of the table, but Ferguson doesn’t plan to bolster his squad with new signings during the one-month transfer window.

Title rivals Manchester City look set to buy Wolfsburg forward Edin Dzeko, while Chelsea are in the market for a new defender and Arsenal could move for a goalkeeper.

Ferguson, who has already completed the capture of Denmark keeper Anders Lindegaard from Aalesund, is confident his squad is strong enough to last the pace in the title race.

“I don’t think so,” he told Key103 when asked if he would make signings.

“There is always this situation that if a certain player came up that we like we would do something but that doesn’t really happen in January.

“In any case, a lot of the players relish the fact we are keeping ahead of the game by bringing in players who can challenge and be a first-team squad player.

“We are all in it together and we all want to win together. Having a stronger squad helps.”
