Alex Ferguson London, May 3 (ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will leave behind a young squad with Wayne Rooney in the vanguard and the opportunity for his successor to take United on even further.

But his top priority will be to find replacements for the ageing Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. That will be his transfer market priorities in his remaining time at the club.

He will also want to add an extra layer of quality to his forward line - especially if Carlos Tevez leaves.

United’s continuing dominance is not the only lasting impact their manager will leave his replacement. His success can be measured in bricks and mortar with the 75,000 capacity Old Trafford a testimony to the success Fergie has achieved.

United are buying up parcels of land which will enable them to expand the stadium even further. They already own a number of warehouses and also the 26-acre Manchester International Freight Terminal. But the new land grab is designed to increase stadium capacity to 95,000, reports The Sun. (ANI)
