Sir Alex Ferguson ready to search for new gem

Ferguson believes his scouts will find players in the same mould as Javier HernandezManchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has praised his scouting network and has revealed he is searching for more gems to follow the path of Javier Hernandez in the near future.

Fergie has admitted he does not envy City’s buying powers as they have changed the complexion of the transfer marker over the past couple of seasons, and he remains confident that he is satisfied with the groundwork that United have done to ensure they remain the top club in the country.

United’s structure as allowed the 69-year-old to be relaxed about the threat United’s neighbours now possess, as he feels the long-term plan at Old Trafford is now showing benefits that all can see. When asked if he would like to share the buying power Mancini enjoys, Sir Alex provided an honest answer.

“You can do a lot of things with money, of course,” he explained to journalists before Sunday’s derby clash. “There’s not a lot you can do with this training ground, though, other than the things we’re doing next summer with it, so we’re ahead of the game in that respect.

“We have a good training ground, a good youth set-up and we don’t need to touch that. We do well scouting abroad to get young players in so there’s not a lot we could do with money/

“It could make us even better in some respects but I don’t look at money as an important issue for us. If I need a player, the Glazers have been great and have always provided money – and will continue to do so. The difference between us and City is we have bought over a long period and there’s a structure here. City are doing it in a quick spell because the Abu Dhabi people took over looking for instant results, which they’re getting.”
