Sir Alex Ferguson looking at “three signings to boost quality” at Manchester United

Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to land three main signings for Manchester United this summerManchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has suggested the Old Trafford club will look to make three significant signings over the summer transfer window and is aiming to add quality to a squad set to lose some players due to age.

Whilst Edwin van der Sar is retiring, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes cannot go on forever. There is also the question of the future with regards to Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves too.

Sir Alex Ferguson told MUTV, the official Manchester United television channel.

“We have some ideas in mind, hopefully we can get them put in place. We have Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes coming towards the end of their careers, Gary Neville has already retired and Edwin van der Sar is retiring, so there are holes we want to plug up in terms of the safety and security of the team for the next few years.”

The record breaking manager added.

“Of course, we have some excellent young players and a lot of them have progressed, which gives us a great, powerful squad. I am looking at maybe three signings which would boost our overall quality in our team.”

Whilst Ferguson gave no clues as to who these signings would be, a goalkeeper is certainly one position that will need to filled plus a long term replacement for Paul Scholes who may even retire at the end of the season.
