Fergie rules out new signings

13 July 2009 01:47
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson does not intend to make any more signings before the new Premier League season starts in less than five weeks' time. The Scot has added Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia and Gabriel Obertan to his squad this summer but has lost Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Fraizer Campbell. He said: "It's the end of our business, so all these stories about who we're are supposed to be getting - forget it. "Daniel Welbeck and Federico Macheda are both young players - but young players with ability always get a chance here." Of the money the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City have been spending on new players this summer, Ferguson added: "There are some amazing numbers being talked about, not all of them realistic. "It's very difficult to get value now. In a way we benefited through the sale of Cristiano, although that figure was non-negotiable. "But I feel we have a good squad, which meant there was no need for knee-jerk reactions. "We asked about Benzema and we had a value for him. Lyon have done well because they got 42million Euros but I think we took a sensible view."
