Give Fergie A Shock Pill

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he suffered a bout of shock over Lucas Moura's €45 million deal with Paris St Germain.

Following the huge purchases of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva, Ferguson stated the world had 'gone mad'.

"I find it quite amazing that a club can pay 45 million euros for a 19-year-old boy," said the Scot.

"To tell everyone that PSG are here they've signed Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. They must have spent about £150m in the last month.

"The only deterrent to that is UEFA.

"In the conditions of European football, you don't qualify for Europe by winning the league or coming second - you only get in by invitation.

"That's where, hopefully, UEFA can have some power.

"When somebody's paying €45m for a 19-year-old boy you have to say the game's gone mad."
