We don’t need to spend millions in transfer market: Ferguson

Alex Ferguson London, Jul 29 (ANI): Sir Alex Ferguson is backing Manchester United’s young players Federico Macheda, Tom Cleverley, Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling, and the Da Silva twins rather than spend millions in the transfer market.

The new United players are all waiting to burst on to the Premier League stage this season, The Sun reports.

Ferguson said: “I’ve got probably 12 players all under 21, which is a fantastic average age, and the future should be pretty secure with them.

“Over the years we’ve bought players for quite high amounts like Dimitar Berbatov, Rio Ferdinand, Juan Sebastian Veron and Wayne Rooney. But we try to equate how we’re going to get the proper value before we do it.”

“When I see some of the values now, and you’re talking about players at 40 or 30 million pounds, we have to assess our own players first. We take a quite good view of it now and say let’s look at our own young players,” Ferguson said.

“Have they got the ability? How much can we trust them? Do we see a top player in that young player? And we’re not bad, you know. There are some good young players who have come through the system. They understand the club, they’re loyal to the club, and we can build on that,” he said. (ANI)
