Manchester United to spend 50 million pounds on transfers in 14 daysMay 27th, 2008 - 5:35 pm ICT by admin
London, May 27 (ANI): Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson has told the football clubs board that he wants to conclude his 50 million pound summer transfer spending within the next fortnight.
Keen to build swiftly on the teams Premier League and Champions League double triumph, Ferguson wants this summer’s business done before he goes on his annual summer holiday to the exclusive resort of Cap Ferrat in the South of France next week.
Top of Fergie’s wanted list are Sevilla’s Brazilian duo, striker Luis Fabiano and defender Daniel Alves, who are likely to cost United a combined 30-million pounds.
Alves is being seen as Gary Neville’s permanent replacement at right back, but Fergie remains keen on Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards, despite his likely 20 million pound price tag, reports The Mirror.
There is likely to be a maximum of four new faces at United this summer, while three departures are inevitable - defenders Mikael Silvestre and Gerard Pique, as well as injury-plagued striker Louis Saha. (ANI)
