Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has announced he will not be adding to his squad in the upcoming January transfer window.
United have already secured a deal to sign Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard from Aalesund but when asked about any new potential arrivals, Ferguson replied “definitely not”.
Despite the apparent lack of incoming activity, Ferguson hopes to secure a loan move for Federico Macheda away from Old Trafford. Ferguson outlined how the Italian forward should look to emulate the successful loan spells of Danny Welbeck and Mame Biram Diouf.
“It can pan out exactly the same for him. It would be the same thing, going to a club, getting that experience for six months and coming back to us a better player.”
Rooney: Wrong to challenge Fergie.
Manchester United starlet Wayne Rooney has today admitted he was wrong to question the ambition of Manchester United during his recent contract wrangle.
Rooney told the club’s MUTV channel that he went “too far”, adding that it was inexcusable of him to suggest the club were unable to attract the highest calibre players:
“Looking back, it was nothing to do with me. I just wanted to make sure signing was the right thing to do and I got the answers in the end. But it was probably wrong of me to do that.”
Rooney also revealed that conversations with Sir Alex Ferguson, chief executive David Gill and members of the Glazer family convinced him to remain at Old Trafford and pen a new deal.
