Ferguson rules out Man Utd signings in January

Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted Manchester United will not be making any signings when the winter transfer window opens in January, the Daily Mail has reported, as rumours persist that the manager is keen on bringing Arsenal winger Theo Walcott to the club.

The Mail adds that Ferguson’s stance risks the Old Trafford outfit being left behind by a number of their rivals, who are expected to have a busy few weeks as they look to bolster their respective squads.

Manchester City are said to be considering a move for the unhappy Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, while Chelsea want Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, as well as Walcott, and Liverpool could bid for Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge and Blackpool winger Thomas Ince, son of former United midfielder Paul Ince.

Ferguson’s squad has been boosted with the return to action of captain Nemanja Vidic, who made a second-half cameo against Sunderland on Saturday after around three months out following surgery.

The manager said: “I will not be bringing anybody in, in January – definitely not. It will take [Vidic] a bit of time but that is a start. People keep saying we are weak in midfield but these guys are very good players.
