Ferguson expects quiet transfer window for top sides

Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the January transfer window will be quiet for the top clubs in the Barclays Premier League, manutd.com reports.

Ferguson has been hit with a wealth of injuries in recent weeks and has been reported as looking to sign some players in the window. Manchester United have been in the market for a creative midfield player all season long and have seen approaches for Luka Modric and Wesley Sneijder rebuffed. Ferguson has admitted that it is difficult to sign good players in January and may have to wait until the summer to make some serious deals.

The United boss said: ‘The reason there may not be many big signings in January is because the players clubs want are not available. To be honest with you, who would want to sell their best player in January? I don’t see it happening. There are cases of players whose contracts are running out in the summer, but they won’t get the same money anyway. It’ll be well reduced’.

United are intending to loan some of their young players to clubs in January and have already let striker Federico Macheda move to QPR. Fellow United striker Mame Biram Diouf is also expected to leave Old Trafford, but Ferguson insists he will not rush any deals.
