Manchester United's summer spending may already be over according to Old Trafford chief executive David Gill. The Red Devils have already agreed deals for Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves, Sporting Lisbon winger Nani and FC Porto schemer Anderson, but Gill believes that further deals are unlikely. He told MUTV: "We will see what happens over the next two or three months, but by and large that will be the major element of our business. "If a player comes up that Sir Alex is convinced will make us better, I am sure we will find the funds, but that is a major bit of business we have done this week." Meanwhile, United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz believes the capture of young stars Anderson and Nani shows the club's long-term ambitions. He added on Portuguese television: "It is a significant investment in Manchester United's prospects for the next ten years. "It's an attraction being able to develop their abilities. These signings mean the end of a long observation process. "They are players who correspond to the club's intentions. They are young and have plenty of potential and talent."
